A Spoonful of Sugar and Papertake Weekly Challenges



I have managed to combine 2 challenges in one card here. The challenge over on Papertake Weekly is another great sketch from Katharina - Sketch No. 8 - thanks Katharina, this was a great one in fact I will probably try to make another card later with this sketch.
Over on A Spoonful of Sugar the challenge was to use something recycled. I had coloured in this Sweet Ebony image a couple of weeks ago, but had gone over the lines on her hair and also her feet as it was not the right type of paper to use with my pro markers. I really liked the colours however and had decided to keep it as a guide if I decided to colour another one. Today I have gone around the outline with a light grey copic marker and I think you can hardly see the places where I had gone over the lines. I have also managed to use up small scraps of K&Company Hopscotch card that I have had in my stash forever.
The flowers are prima and the pink gems from Hero Arts.

Thanks for looking.
