Make it Crafty CHALLENGE: FOCUSING ON HAIR

There is a new challenge on the Make it Crafty blog: Focusing on hair.
I like to color hair with my Copics, but recently I bought the new Spectrum Noir Aquamarkers.
And I only used them for flowers and backgrounds, untill now.
A challenge is a challenge, so I challenged myself to color this gorgeous image "April"with my new markers :D
I found that I have to search for the right skin colors, this one is a bit too pale I think.
But I musn't compare it with the Copic colors.

So, image was chosen, markers on my desk, printing!!
Uhm, not really!!
The printer wasn't really suitable for my heavy watercolor paper this time, so half way printing and it stopped!

So I decided not to give up and color the half of the image:D
I made some step by step photo's, with my phone so not really great but it gives an impression.

 Used colors: Peach and Spice.
 Tan, Chocolate and Sepia.
 Burgundy for the lips.

 Leaf green and Boulder for her eyes.
Aquamarin and teal for her shirt.

So far my half image :D
Then on Facebook someone suggested to make her "peak around"something.
So I searche in my Silhouette library and found this folded card file, perfect for April!
 Added a ribbon through the holes, and some rhinestones and finished.
Close up.

So this one is for the Make it Crafty Color challenge # 20.
I'm also entering this for fun in The Outlawz PAM challenge, theme, "Something OLD, Something NEW, and Something BLUE"

And now for our spotlighted card from last week's entries!!!

I love this card by Teresa Arsenault because it is so bright and cheery. The paper weaving is so pretty -----and look at that fabulous bow.  Cute chickie image and of course, the sentiment is a special one!! Teresa, please take this badge and put on your blog.

 
This is a brand new badge so I'm hoping our past showcased or spotlighted members will take the badge, too. 
I'm not sure if I'm supposed to mention it yet, but starting next week, we have a new member to our design team.  Please welcome Andrea Norris. You will really enjoy her gorgeous creations!

And now that we have all that done, here is our sketch!! It is a great one ---one I will use over and over because it is so versatile.

And now for some inspiration cards from our sketch team! Once again, we have all used the same image by our sponsor, Drawn with Character.

Wow, I love the chevron background paper and look at those glorious clouds. I may have to have Pat give me a few lessons on making clouds.

A great match of background papers!! Margaret has made me feel like spring is on its way!

Sandra has rotated the sketch and I love how it turned out. The ribbons and flowers are so pretty!

I just love this sketch and it worked out so nicely for this cute bunny. He just makes me smile!!

Thank you for looking at our cards and we hope that you found some inspiration to take part in the Sketch Challenge!!  
Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch, as long as we can see that the sketch was your inspiration.
