The best part about Sherri Baldy and My Besties, is that there's something new and exciting always happening.  
Today's post comes with a ton of excitement and and abundance of love because I have been asked to be apart of Sherri's personal blog team as a contributor and team coordinator...Oh my can you hear my excitement?
Every Monday I will be posting something new and wonderful showcasing her beautiful hand drawn art

To get the show started I have used this image which can be purchased at the ETSY Shop by clicking here
She is a cutie that I have paper pieced her dress using Simple Stories Summer Fresh paper line 

This digital image was printed at 3x4 allowing me to make a 6x6 card 

My favorite part of this image was coloring her hair.  I have used the above listed Copic Markers and when it came time to do the ponytails I use the tip to paper technique creating clusters of dots.  I did a few extra just to make her pony tails stand out even more

The above colors listed are Copic Markers.  I used a chalk to color her cute cheeks

I cannot tell you how happy I am with how she turned out.  I really love how vibrant and alive the image becomes when Copic Markers are used.

March is the kick off for the blog, it's National Craft Month and Sherri has announced that her sponsor program is up and taking request.  If you are interested in having My Besties sponsor you blog challenges send your email request to:  ShersL84bed@aolcom

I look forward to sharing my projects with you each and every Monday, until then happy crafting
