Friday Sketchers - Handmade with Love

Happy Friday everyone!
I have a big smile on my face with glorious sunshine leading the way into our long weekend! I finally got a little time today to get inky with some of my new Magnolia stamps and used the simple but great layout from Friday Sketchers this week. After viewing Rach's copic colouring tutorial (she is a copic genius!!) I played around with this image and did lots of tweaking and highlighting and have to say I'm quite thrilled with the result! Didn't think I'd ever be able to get to the point of achieving this shading - practice really does help perfect things!! I'm still far from perfect though, lol!!!
I rotated the sketch 90 degrees so it could accommodate Tilda better. My papers are from a K&Co stack in my stash and the ribbon is SU! grosgrain. I used the SU! scalloped circle punch for the sentiment. I added some simple stitching detail to each panel too.
Thanks for stopping by today and taking the time to leave a comment! I hope you enjoy a fabulous Labor Day weekend and get lots of sunshine wherever you are!
