Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #52 ~ Sketch

Hello everyone I do hope you are all having a good week? I'm sharing a card I put together over the weekend for the Paperbabe Sketch challenge and thought i'd better share it with you all before the challenge is over.. Here's my very quick How to do's..!!

This challenge is a Sketch Challenge where Kim gives a prompt along with interpretations for inspiration. I must admit I struggled thinking this one out in my head so decided to get messy and create each part then think again on how I would piece it all together.

Here's my pieces..

.. laying down my Card foundation..

1: Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress background
2: Tando Circle coloured in Caran D'Ache pastels and pencils. 
White Posca Marker dots and distressed edges using Black Soot.
3: Tando Butterfly coloured in Neocolor and Black Soot
4: Black strip of card with a Paperbabe sentiment stamped and embossed.

.. and finishing it all off with my focal feature of Little Red 
painted with water soluble pastels and pencils.

Phewwwww... I hope I got it right..?
It certainly kept my brain active and I'm quite pleased with the outcome 
apart from it needing the odd tweak here and there.
I hope you like it too..

Until next time stay safe..
Creative Hugs
Tracey xx

Thank you Annie, another lovely little image to colour. Glad you like it xx

Thank you Dear Dorthe, I just love to colour but for me i'm not happy with the end result and think she needs a little more shade for my liking. Not too sure what to do with her yet maybe she may look good in a frame ? xx

What a lovely card, Tracey. It reminds me the fairytale! I love the girl and the moon. Kisses, my friend.

Thank you Mia, so glad you like my card. It's a rather dark depiction of the Fairy Tale, maybe I should have sketched the shadow of the Wolf in the Moonlight to really set the scene xx
