Roisin is 5

Hi and welcome to Freshly Made Sketches!  Today's challenges comes to us from Rita - who is fast becoming an expert at coloring with Copics!  Here's her sketch for today.


I needed a birthday card for my youngest niece, Roisin, who recently turned 5, so came up with this card.


I Copic-colored the little fox and balloons before cutting them out with the matching dies.  I then created a little background for him using a cloud die-cut as a stencil.  The slope was sponged with Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn inks.  

I die-cut a "5" and colored it with Wink of Stella before covering it with Glossy Accents.  Once it was dry, I sat the fox on it and gave him the balloons to hold!  A white-embossed sentiment and the card was finished.


Thanks for visiting.  As always, the rest of the design team have some wonderful cards for your viewing pleasure.

Stamps:  Up and Away (Mama Elephant), More Fresh Cuts (WP9)

I love everything about this! The sponged cloudy background, the expertly colored balloons, that cute little shimmery fox. I could go on. In fact I will. The big "5", the grassy hill. This is absolutely wonderful!! :)

This little guy is adorable, and I love how you have him sitting on top of the "5". Your sponging and coloring skills always leave me in awe. Wonderful card, Karren!

Perfect card for a 5 year old. Your colouring is amazing - I think your colouring is right up there with Rita's too! I envy your skill - I still find copics a little tricky.
