The Paper Nest Dolls and Maddy with Glasses

One of the new release rubber stamps from The Paper Nest Dolls, Maddy with Glasses, has stolen my heart :)  She is just so sweet!  So I have colored her with my copics (new thing!) and my Prismacolor Pencils, to create this card :)

 I colored her with the following colors:

Hair:  Copics - Y21
PC914, 942, 1034, 943
Skin:  Copics - E000
PC927, 939, 1029
Dress:  Copics - BG72
PC1088, 1027, 901, 938
Shoes:  Copics - E99
PC943, 946, 948
Book:  Copics - E00, Prismacolor Brush Marker - PB4

I have starting blocking in the color with alcohol markers as I find it gives a much fuller color to the image :)  But I have reverted back to my pencils for shading and details of course :)  I own very few Copics and Prismacolor Brush Markers, so I'll be working with a limited color palette until I can get more colors!

Something else I have been doing that's new:  I have challenged myself to create all my projects using sketches:)  I found a website with sketches that I really like, and they combine their sketches into a pdf for you to download!  So here's the one I started with, from  Check back often to see more projects using this page of card sketches :)  This is only the first of ten.

If you are looking for some new and very sweet rubber stamp images, come on over to The Paper Nest Dolls online store to see them all!  And don't forget about our monthly challenge, where it's always Anything Goes for a chance to win an awesome prize :)
