Woo hoo - three challenges in one!

Well, I said I was going to complete some challenges this week and, boy, am I! I'm playing The Greeting Farm relay (managed to do this second day!) and I am submitting the same card for Mojo Monday sketch #123 and Anyone for Anya! Here's my card...

So for TGF CHA Relay, I of course used the Charlotte digi, the sketch below for Mojo Monday and A4A's Heart For Hearts Sake challenge. Instead of using my Copics (as I had awful ink running issues with yesterday's digi Mer Ian), today I used my Koh-i-Noor pencils with Sansador (I bought mine from Elzybells here), although I did use my Copics for the skin as there isn't really a suitable colour in the pencils. For dimension, I stepped layered the hearts, i.e. first the large pink heart on to 1mm foam, then the orange onto 2mm foam and lastly the brown onto 3mm foam.

I'm hoping to complete the Just Us Girls challenge to use a 3D template this week - fingers crossed!!

Papers/cardstock: DCWV cardstock, My Minds Eye Pretty Please paper kit
Stamps: image - free digi TGF Charlotte, sentiment from TGF Talk Aloud set
Mediums: Koh-i-Noor pencils, Copic Caios, Stampin' Up chocolate chip ink
Accents: ribbon and gems from stash
Tools: Woodware heart punches

Hi Mary! I think you did a beautiful job on this. Is Sansador? Is that an odorless mineral spirit like Gamsol? I saw that you said you had trouble with your ink running with your Copics. I'm going to assume you are using an ink jet printer--so try coloring right UP TO the black line but do not touch it. The ink will spread on it's own and you won't smear the ink. Does that make sense? I might try to give a sample of that tomorrow on my blog. I'm glad you stopped by. I'm going to look through your blog a bit more! :)
