My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge #353

Hello and welcome to this week's Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I always love using an MFT sketch as a starting point on my projects... it takes a lot of the guess work out of the overall design and just let's me create.

I have been taking a lot of online Copic classes and really trying to learn how to use my markers to their full potential so I decided to create a card with a background scene created entirely with my markers. I was inspired by a card that Sandy Allnock created with an icy lake and decided to try and re-create the look on my card with the new Polar Pals stamp set.

I stamped my images onto a white piece of card stock and when I stamped the seal in the water, I removed some of the ink from the bottom of him before I stamped him so it looks like the lower half of his body is in the water. Once I had them stamped, I created the scene around them with my Copic markers and then I coloured in the seals last.

I don't love the blue colour that I used for the sky but I really like how the water in the icy lake turned out so I'm glad I tried it out. Next time I think I'll use deeper blues for the sky and make the water a little brighter.

Thanks for joining me for this week's sketch. Make sure to link up your card at the MFT challenge blog here for a chance to win a $50 GC to My Favorite Things!
