OWH Sunday Sketch #181

It's Sunday! So, that means it's Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge #181.  This sketch did not like me from the very beginning! I definitely changed some things around because I couldn't get my measurements to go right. Must be the heat...throwing my game off. Seriously! It's hhhhooootttt!
Here is the sketch:
See! It's a doozy! 
Here is my take:
Okay. Maybe it's a lot different. But the fundamental elements are there. Sort of. 
I used Copic markers to color her up using the following colors:
Skin-E000,00,21
Hair-Y21,YR12,14,E15,18
Dress-R05,C5

The paper comes from a 6x6 pad called 
Berry Blast by Hampton Art. The sentiment accompanies the stamp. It reads: The sun'll come out, tomorrow. 

 

I used an embossing folder to jive up the square. 
And...there is my stubborn take on this weeks sketch!

Have an awesome Sunday and stay cool, my friends!

    1. Thank you Susan. The embossing folder is one of those cheaper ones from AC Moore. I think it was like 3bucks. The name brand is Darice.

  2. I adore Annie- and of course the way you colored her and love that she is big and bold and extending off the panel--you just cannot contain Annie! You did a fabulous job- love the embossing on one of the squares! And don't feel bad- the measurements are a tiny bit off; the top and bottom strips should have been 5 inches not 4..but no matter what- you did a great job! I love the tans/browns with the red of her dress! Your cards always make we want to buy the stamp you used! My niece was Ms Henningan in her school play and I know she would love a card just like this! I am guessing a fight may break out over this card by some of our troops! It is one of my all time favorites!

    1. Oh Diane thank you! I thought the top/bottom should have been 5! I even tripled checked to make sure I was using an A2 card! Ha! Then I thought my ruler was broke! :) anyways, your comments are very kind and I always liked Annie but I like the sentiment even more!

  7. Your card is straight out of Broadway - I love it! Great coloring! I couldn't make sense of the measurements either, so I cut pieces down and made the sketch work my way :)

  8. I saw in the comment above something about not being able to contain Annie, and that is what I thought when I first saw your card. There is no keeping her in a little box with perfect measurements. Great adaptation of the sketch, and that is what those sketches are all about, inspiration, so it looks like you were inspired. :)

  10. What a cute Annie!! You got me singing, there. :) I love your take on the sketch. Sometimes these challenging sketches can turn out so cool... Just because everybody does their own "take" on them. I love yours!!
