Sketch Saturday #39

Hi Everyone! Thanks for stopping by! Here is my card for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge! Once again, Jo had created a fantaastic sketch for us all to use and we are being sponsored by Emma Lockely once again. What a sweetie she! Please see the SS challenge blog for all the details!

Last week I received my Whiff of Joy Spring Kit and it is gorgeous! I was so happy that it arrived in time for me to use one of the lovely images for this week's card. It was so hard to choose one because they are all so sweet, but I think this one is my favorite! Don't worry if you missed the kit, they are now available individually at the WOJ site.

I wanted to create something light and Spring-like. I started with DP from Memory Box and that is how I chose what colors of Copic Markers to use. I then masked the image and airbrushed using two different colors. I used the lighter yellow one close around the image and then used the blue around the perimeter of the oval. It is the first time that I have used 2 colors in that way but I really like how it turned out! Sometimes my experiments don't turn out as I envisioned but this one did! I always keep the cardstock inside the nestie die when I air-brush so that I can get that crisp white border.

Here are the Copic markers I used. For airbrushing, I used YG00 & B000(not shown)

Here is Jo's sketch! I hope you get a chance to play along this week. My fellow DT once again have made AMAZING cards, so go have a look! Have a wonderful week-end! Mine will be filled to the brim once again with hockey, fencing, birthday parties and show practices!
