Happy Little Stamper September Sketch Challenge



It is time for a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers Sketch Challenge.  Here is the sketch we have for you this month:


I went in a totally new different direction for me with this sketch--no stamps!  While I was thinking about this sketch, I saw a couple of videos on the Daily Marker blog.  My head was spinning with ideas for lines and eyelashes.  Without looking at the sketch a second time, I started drawing lines and coloring shapes with my Copic markers.

I drew all the vertical lines first, varying the space between lines.  Then I drew horizontal lines connecting the vertical lines at random intervals.  After all the lines were drawn, I started coloring, just eyeballing where the colors should go.  The only rule I tried to follow was that adjacent spaces should not have the same color.  After all my coloring was done, I drew in the tiny eyelash lines.




This is the first card I made using Kathy's line techniques as inspiration, but it is the second card I have posted.  Please click here to see the second card I made using this technique and posted a few weeks ago.

Please visit the Happy Little Stampers Sketch Challenge blog for more ideas and inspiration for this sketch.  I hope you will play along.  You have the entire month of September.


Thanks for Visiting
