Challenge #1 at A Die for a Sketch...

Good morning lovelies, how are you all, Who watched the Queens Diamond Jubilee Concert last night? I have never felt so proud to be British! The artists were good but the crowd was amazing! to hear them cheering for the Queen was heart warming and so lovely. I will be looking forward to watching the procession today too.
So the Reason for todays post is to launch the first challenge over at a brand new monthly challenge blog, A Die For A Sketch. The title says it all, we want to see a die cut on the sketch that is given. 
This is the first sketch,


And this is what I have done,



I have rotated the sketch and gone with a very patriotic colour combo. I grabbed this Mo manning image as soon as I saw it, isnt she just the cutest!! You can buy her HERE.

CARD RECIPE
Image - waiting for the parade
Papers - maja designs life in the country
medium - copics and prismacolor pencil for shading

I really love this one and it's a great inspiration for our 4th of July Celebration here in the US. Your Diamond Jubilee activities were wonderful and so beautifully done, even in the rain. so glad the events were aired in the US as it's quite a memorable feat for the Queen. Thanks for sharing Kat!
