Friday Sketchers - African Trio

Hi there!
I am so happy to have gotten into my craft room this afternoon!  I still have 3 cards to finish off for my charity donation and knew the fabulous Friday Sketchers sketch this week would work just great for this image.  I didn't want to colour in the trio of African dancers so I grabbed my Copic Airbrush and played with 3-4 colours airbrushing the image.  I am really happy with the result.  The paper is from the gorgeous BG Marrkech line.  I added hemp, grass and beads for my detailing on the card and the 'flower' in the top left corner was 4 punched circles glued together with a black brad.
I was worried that my mojo would still be on vacation too and would take time returning but I'm happy to say my creative juices are a-flowing!! :O)
The boys don't have any extra-curricular stuff on tonight so hopefully I'll be able to get back downstairs and craft some more!  Thanks for stopping by and leaving a much appreciated comment - I'm so happy to be back blogging!!
