BG#20 follow the sketch: 'It's your day'

Here's a card I made for the Basic grey challenge which is a sketch this week.Stash:
  • Images: 'celebrating foxes' WOJ stamp as is the sentiment, which is from the 'party sentiment' set
  • Papers: Basic grey 'sugared' with dark brown cardstock for base card
  • Colouring: Copic Ciaos - still getting used to these as the nibs on these are a softer brush tip compared to the smaller hard nibs of the Promarkers so need a steadier, lighter hand near the edges but apart from that they are essentially the same just a question of personal preference and budget (the Ciaos are only about 10p more, it's the Sketch ones which are more pricey) I loved my Promarkers but was wanting more colours (especially in the softer shades).
  • Others:Mega curved rectangles nestabilities (ooo, have you seen the new ones due out soon - got my eye on a couple of those), heart ribbon punch, corner punch and ribbon.

Will be back tomorrow with my ATC and maybe another card that I've nearly finished.
