Here is my entry for the Friday Sketchers challenge and i really enjoyed working to this sketch.


  1. Hi

    What a cute card!! Love it, esp the colour-combo & the frogs. I must buy myself some different stamps (I only own 8 tildas & 3 sets of woodware clear stamps, LOL!).

    To answer your question, I used my whisper pens and my whisper blender pen to colour the image on my entry. I was using the whispers with water just like watercolours, but I had a problem with them bleeding (not sure whether it was my technique or my impatience to let each dry!). So now I stick to colouring the places where I want the darker shadow with a colour and then use the blender pen to drag the colour out into where I want the lihjter colour (hope that makes sense!?). [I've even experimented with using special watercolour paper, but it turn out any better than using normal white thick card!].

    Anyway, thanks for your lovely comments, and I'll visit again soon!

  2. Hi Semsee
