I used to like to draw, and something I saw recently inspired me to try again. I drew this portrait of my daughter and turned it into a card. I colored it in with CTMHs alcohol markers, but there is no flesh colored one, so I used my old Taffy marker. It doesn't blend well, and that's why you can see the lines on her skin. I also would like to get some browns and a lighter yellow. Some of our markers are on backorder, so I will get those whenever they become available. For my first try, I don't think it's too bad. I am entering this into the one-layer challenge at Less is More where the challenge is to use any shaped card but a square/rectangle; I know they'll tell me I don't have enough white space, but it wasn't really possible on this card.

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy
Old Style markers (retired): Taffy, Desert Sand
Other: black Slick Writer (not CTMH)


  1. It is great to draw again! I have done a sketch drawing for my card as well, though not as ambitious or sweet as yours.

    Keep being creative!!

  2. What a lovely tribute to your daughter Sarah!

  3. It must be very difficult to try to blend colours without the benefit of alcohol markers... great job Sarah!
    Thanks so much
