Friday Sketchers ~35~



Another gorgeous sketch this week over at FRIDAY SKETCHERS, thanks Mumur.. I loved it!

I did forget one of the layers in this sketch but only noticed when it was too late.. so left it like this.

Again I have managed to use Old but new stash [stamps] and scraps of paper [HOTP] from my scrap paper folder, I had to because I couldn’t even close it anymore!! 🙂


  • Stamp: Magnolia Tilda, Magnolia Suitcases, sentiment by Hero Arts, Swirls by Autumn Leaves
  • Medium: Rangers distress inks in Tattered Rose [face] China Blue [dress] Worn Lipstick [shirt, cheeks] Frayed Burlap [stockings, suitcases] Walnut Stain [Hair] Vintage Photo [Hair, suitcases]
  • Papers: Scraps of HOTP
  • Rangers Liquid Pearls on the swirls
  • Flowers: Prima and Maya Road velvet flower
  • Tools: Fiskars treading water punch, nesties

I’ve been really naughty… after alot of thinking and pondering I finally took the plunge and ordered myself some Copic Sketch markers [ahum..some??..  more like alot!!] 

I’m still loving my distress inks.. but I want to challenge myself and learn to use a new medium.. sooo if all you talented Copic users out there know of any good online tutorials please let me know 🙂

Thanks everso much for your visit and any message you might leave 🙂

Have a great evening,

Hugs, Marlene xx
