Splendid Sketch #1

Hi friends! Yesterday I got a knock on the door and to my utmost surprise it was the FedEx guy with my Copics!!! I almost ran over Stewie trying to get to the door. Stewie was very excited as well. So today I thought I'd share with you a Splendid Sketch. Bear with me, I'm new at making sketches. Here is the very first sketch.


My sketches will probably be super simple. I should call them Super Simple Sketches right? hahaha. Feel free to play along. I think it is a great idea to help keep the creativeness flowing. Its nice to have a little library of sketches because I don't know about you but I always sit in front of my craft stuff with a blank look on my face. Lol. So I'm making it a goal to have a few sketches a week for fun. I would try to make it a daily thing but... I'm trying to be realistic. haha.

Since the arrival of my much coveted copics, I totally went on a card making spree yesterday! They are so awesome at coloring! It's like, now I MUST have all the colors! I currently have 40 something markers. Here are a few cards to share!

This is from the upcoming release Cup of Stuff!

These Anyas are so much FUN to color!!! Nancy was right! Ok, so I totally forgot that I was suppose to do something important the beginning of this week but with all the frenzy going on, it slipped my mind. Sorry! Hopefully no one remembers. Lol. So to make it up I've decided to have another...

*** Splendid Secret giveaway ***

Nurse Anya Stamp

It is only for today. I'll announce the lucky owner tomorrow morning!

Today's question is: What are your favorite Color Combos?


Heidi said...

Oh she is soooo cute and I am a nurse so of course I love her.
My favorite combos: pinks and greens and then pink and brown right now anyways.
Do you not love your copics? I can not stop coloring with them, fearing I will start running out of my favorite colors too! Yikes...... keep copicing and showing us girl!
(hugs to stewie as he got trampled)

I really enjoy SU! basic grey with either soft sky or baja breeze and purely pom or any one of the burgundy shades to accent. so cool and soothing! I don't have any copics (yet!!) so I play with my SU! markers, aqua painters, and blender pens. still lots of fun!

Jami {sgtStamper} said...

Your cards are all so adorable!! Awesome coloring! Anya is too cute!

I don't have a particular favorite color combo - I usually pick a DP that speaks to me first and pull my colors from that, or I pick colors that I think go with an image (like if it is a water, or tree, or patriotic or something...) I really like green-blues and yellow-greens though.
Smiles, Jami

Erika M. said...

Mel said...

I love your cards! Your stamps are soooo cute! Just discovered them today.

As for your question, I don't yet own any Copics, but I've been looking at getting a set of pastels with a grey and a blender pen.

charlene.herter said...

I love grey and pink together. Or green and pink. I don't know why because I don't really like pink as a color. I just like making cards with it when matched with those two colors. Thanks for the chance to win an Anya!

pammy jo said...

I love the stamp, it's so cute!

I love blue-brown combo, and autumn colors. I try many different combos, I hate to repeat the same things again and again.

gojenlaw said...

I love this nurse stamp, it would be used such much for gift cards this holiday. Since, I am a nurse and work with many nurses.

Niki said...

Shades of blues are my favorite. I also like jewel tones a lot.

I love the sketch, keep them coming. I'm always looking for new inspiration and layouts. Seems like I use the same ones over and over--boring me!
