Just Magnolia Week # 46 Bev's Sketch

Happy Monday........................ Ahhhhh, I hate Mondays!!!  If I were home during the day I probably wouldn't care, but Mondays... Ugh.... Back to work!!!  I can almost see the little trouble makers in our class already!  ha ha...   Oh I don't even want to think about it!!!  So I will try not to!

I have my card completed already for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge.  Bev has given us a nice little sketch to use, and it made for a quick and easy card.  I decided to make my card an Easter card, since Easter will soon be here.  I have about 3 more that I'm going to need, Soooooo, I think you'll be seeing some Eastery cards coming your way from me over the next week or two. 
I'm quite excited about this card actually, because I tried some different shades for the skin and managed to get exactly what I was hoping for.... Yipee!!!   Thanks Risa  =)

I used Copic colors YR20 for the base layer of the skin, and then E11 and E33 for edging & shading.  FINALLY a color combo that works for the darker skin tones! 

So what do you think?  I'm curious!  LOL

I have absolutely NO IDEA why this image appears to be on the card crooked, because it's not in real life, maybe the angle I took the picture from, so honestly I'm not as crooked as I may seem. ha ha  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are all having a GREAT day!

THIS IS DARLING!! I get pics that look crooked too. I think it is because it is so dang hard to get the card just so in the picture. What eve, right?? :)
