Some Odd Girl- my very first!

What a dismal day it is today- I think it's been raining here in Essex for 48 hours non-stop. Just a wee bit depressing! Anyway yesterday I decided to make a card just for fun- you know- no DT work, no deadlines- just cos I wanted!! I've recently fallen in love with Some Odd Girls! Yes, I know I'm strange- why has it taken me so long? I can't answer but I have fallen for them in a big way so expect to see some more from me! So I decided to enter this month's SOG's sketch challenge.


I have used Picnic Mae and coloured her with copics with a few lyra pencil highlights. These pretty papers are October Afternoon Woodland Park. Fence, grass and banner die are all Die-namics. Sentiment is Hero Arts. Butterflies are one of the paper designs which I then simply cut out.


Close up. I hope I've done her justice with my colouring. Kristy is such a fantastic colourist- is that a word?!


The sketch!

I'd also like to enter this card into:
Make It Monday- anything goes
Challenges for Everybody- anything goes
No Matter Which Challenges- diecuts/punches
Cupcake Craftroom- pretty pastels
Heck of a Challenge- anything goes
Ladybug Crafts- anything goes
Brown Sugar Challenge- anything goes

Crafty stash used: Stamps (SOG, Hero Arts); Copics; Lyra pencils; Papers (October Afternoon); Assorted cardstock; Fence, banner & Grass Die-namics (MFT); Gems (Prima)
