My little sister just earned her black belt in Karate!!! She's always been tough and this latest achievement is just another proof of how hard-working and committed she can be. I'm so proud of her, especially since I've started taking TaeKwanDo. My struggles to learn the basic moves have given me even greater appreciation for her abilities. Anyhow, I made this card to congratulate my sister.
I chose this sweet digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil which I coloured with Copic markers. Colouring the white Gi was a challenge for me but I'm pretty happy with the result. I added a bit of brown distress ink around all of the card elements as well, especially around the background paper so that it would seem to merge into the kraft cardstock background.
The papers are Basic Grey and I used a sketch from this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge. As you'll see, I kept very true to the original sketch because it really just suited what I wanted to do so well.
