Nearly the weekend....
It's back to work for me next week and I haven't done half the things I wanted to get done. I've been full of a cold the last few days. Why do we always get ill when we're on holiday ??
Today's card is another of Krista's lovely Saturated Canary images. I know it's a rather wintry image and I'm so looking forward to spring, but this is for a friends birthday and she used to be an International ice skater, so it suits her to a tee. Brown and turquoise are her favourite colours too.
I have used this weeks sketch from the Saturday Sketch Challenge (#194) to base my card on.
I have been playing around trying to shade and create the folds of her skirt...a bit more practice needed I think. There are some great videos on youtube. It's fantastic that these very talented ladies take the time to share their skills. It's very much appreciated.
Here's a close up.
And a side view. I have dyed the turquoise flowers myself and am quite pleased with the outcome, although they don't look quite as bright in real life.
