Sketch Saturday #86: Squiggle Stamps Lilliputs

Happy Saturday!

Today over at Sketch Saturday we have another wonderful sketch by Jo, and this week we are being sponsored by our very own Emma Lockley:

I decided to showcase one of the new Lilliputs stamps from Squiggle Stamps, and this one is called 'Arty Girl'.  (NB I added the floor paint splats myself, using a Letraset fineliner, so please note that they aren't part of the original stamped image).

I'm definitely going to put the rest of the Copic Ciao Markers on my wishlist for my birthday, or at least a list of colours I can't do without), as I am severely lacking 'blonde hair' colours. I have the 36A and 36B (or 72A) sets of Copic Ciaos, and whilst I have all the pens I need for colouring brown hair, I want some honey-ish colours, as the yellows just don't look right for me!

In fact, if you're a Copic girl and you have a certain set of colours you use for blonde hair, I'd be really grateful if you could let me know the numbers.  I'm quite happy to buy sketch markers if I can get the right colours, as one of my fave online shops now stocks them - yay!!

Thanks for popping by - have a great weekend!

  8. Love this!!!

    For blonde hair I've been using E50, E53 and E97 lately. Gives an orangey tone - that's what I used on my Kraftin' Kimmie Lavinia and Genevieve cards and the fairy I posted this week.

    Previously I think I've used YR21, YR23, with Y23 and Y38.

  9. So glad I checked out your blog..the cards are AMAZING!!

    will be keeping an eye out to see what comes next xx
