Sarah Kay Challenge 8 - Sketch


Good afternoon, I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I'm desperately trying to complete some challenges for Sunday. I know, I know, I'm leaving it till the last minute, as usual!
This card is for the Sarah Kay Challenge Week 8 and is a sketch.
I do enjoy colouring these lovely little characters, especially now that I've got my beautiful Pro-Markers. I'll let you into a little secret, I've just ordered some more! Yes, I know I ordered 3 Manga sets so I already had 30, but I just NEEDED some different shades so I've ordered another 10 pens and they should be here on Monday. I blame Caz myself as she was the one who told me how gorgeous they were in the first place.
Anyway, back to the challenge card, the backing papers are from a scrapbooking kit I bought years ago from QVC, can't remember who it was by now (it's my age!) the sentiment is from K & Co and the cuttlebug embossing strip is from one of their new border folders, and although it looks lilac in the scan it's actually dusky pink IRL and matches the backing mat of the image.
I'll be back later to post my final card for another Sunday challenge and then I'll have just made it by the skin of my teeth again.
Hope you like this card and thanks for visiting.

Great Card Chrissie, they are lovely stamps, think they will have to go on my wishlist. I got my first set of Promarkers, just bought the hobby set to see how I get on with them. Only got them yesterday so haven't had much of a play yet

Hi Chrissie the card is beautiful. Sarah Kay is a very close second to Tilda as my favourite. I have been trying to get some more but no luck as yet.

Hmm, now these Sarah Kay stamps are getting to me as well. How long before I cave in. It's a beautiful card and your colouring is lovely. Have you given up with the Sansador method?
