Sketch #75

Morning Sketchers!

Hope you are all well! Today sees the start of a new challenge here on Friday Sketch Challenge!

Do not forget to come back next week and check out the winner and DT Top 3 Sketch # 74!


Our sponsor this fortnight is All Dressed Up . They are offering one lucky winner a choice of two digis from their Etsy shop!


Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters,  in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends.  I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.

Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .

All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.

We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.


We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.

Here is the sketch to work for this challenge:

@Hi, my name is Emma, I have a nice 9-5 which keeps me busy and I spend whatever spare time I have in the evenings designing digital stamps for Flat Friends. I got into drawing digi’s a couple of years ago and love seeing them out and about in the real world on cards. I had always coloured my digi’s digitally on Photoshop but recently purchased my first set of Copic’s as I felt as though I was cheating a bit :-D I’ve got a long way to go until I’ve mastered the art of colouring by hand but I am loving the learning process :-)@
