CAS Koala

OK, for anyone reading my post of yesterday I couldn't resist colouring another Koala.  It's from the same set from My Grafico and, as I had my spectrum noirs out anyway, it's coloured in the same colours (mainly BGRs and CRs).  Anyway, once I had it coloured I wasn't sure what to do with it.  There is a Sketch Challenge this week at Less is More  so I thought I'd have a go and see how it came out.  Here's my take on it:

and here's the sketch:

I left my panel white on white because I wanted  to keep it simple.  I think I should have put a coloured edge around it.  I coloured my hearts in the same set of colours as the ears and heart on the image.  I did try to ombre the colours but the edge wouldn't soften but I quite like the pattern it made. I wasn't sure how far my sentiment would stretch and I should have started it a little further over but it was hard enough to stick down in the first place so that's where it's staying.  The little flowers are the off cuts from a corner punch I have but they seemed to fit the bill.  I hope you like my interpretation.

Thanks for reading.

  3. Amazing use of the sketch! The hearts you used really tie the message of your card together and go so well with the sketch. Great thinking with this one.... And great coloring too! Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!

  4. So cute. Love this little loving guy. Great colours and colouring and it really doesn't matter that the sentiment isn't over further, we can clearly see the sketch design shining through :)
