C.R.A.F.T 38 - Eisketch 2

For my sketch this week at C.R.A.F.T, I've used Mo Manning's two year old toddler Jill and coloured her with Copics!
I love all of Mo's images but her toddlers are seriously well-observed and represented - I mean, just look at that attitude! LOL!

Because the sketch is quite 'busy', plus I wanted Mo's drawing to stand out, I've used quite plain colours and treatment, using Martha Stewart plain pale aqua paper and a couple of her punches to create interest and a little floral peachy paper for the mounts to bring those warmer tones out in the colouring.
I've purposely kept the colouring very light as a challenge to myself not to be too heavy-handed!

I fully intended remembering to list my Copic colours but I'm afraid time has not beeen my friend again this week and neither has my pc - it crashed for four days again!
Like a naughty child, it behaved perfectly at the pc doctor's then came home and threw another wobbler! Technology....pahh! The Luddites had the right idea.....
