Variation on a sketch...

Another quick sketch for this week's challenge over at "Less Is More", which is to use pastel colours.

This is similar in style to the stamp I got made up as shown in my post of 19/02/11. It always surprises me how a few slight differences to the sketch can result in a completely different look.

I've been very naughty coz as well as buying Prisma recently I've now also bought some Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. Hobbycraft had them on offer, so it would have been rude not to. I have to say I couldn't choose between them, they're both lovely to use and both look amazing.

For this sketch I used these gorgeous pinks.

Right, I'm off to enter into the challenge, have a great weekend.

This is gorgeous Sarita, I do wish that you would sell your stamps! They are so beautiful, and the blend of black and colour is really lovely. I am really liking my Polychromos, which are quite new to me. Judith xx

Lizy said...

Wow this is a strikingly beautiful card! You really are very talented to have drawn this...I wish I could draw like that! Or at all even!
I have just look through your blog and I really love your artwork! Where do you get them made into stamps? Are they expensive?

I love the picture of Jasmine...a wonderful picture and a beautiful cat!

Anyway, I'll stop waffling now! Have a great weekend,

Beautiful Sarita ! I have to say I am tempted with the Prisma pencils, but having just spent a fortune on TH stuff, I think they will have to wait ! Sue C x

This is gorgeous again, Sarita- I loved your last sketch/stamp but this is, imo, even better!! :) Love the colours, too- would look so different all in one colour- think i'd be tempted to have the black inked part as the stamp and then be able to add any colour in as you have here!! :)
hugs, Rachel x
