A Sketch from A Spoon Full of Sugar

Today is another sketch ... from a Spoon Full of Sugar! I loved this one and think I will be using it again. Love the circle and the flourish!


For my card I decided it was time to ink up one of my Greeting Farm Ian's that I hadn't gotten a chance to use yet. Isn't he a dapper little dude? I colored him with my Copics , then used my white gel pen to add more stripes and high light. Chalk is used for the back ground, and then a grass stump stamp for added more detail. I was asked if I do my Chalk first or stamp first. I stamp my image, then do the chalk. That way any chalk that gets onto the image is wiped away with my Copics.

My card starts with a white card base. The black background is a scrap.. aren't you proud of me I have been really using up some of this mountain of scraps! The grey pattern is from DCWV, and the red circle is BoBunny. I used Martha Stewart Double Dot Scallop for my band across the middle, then added a black and white gingham ribbon. My Flourish is from Heidi Grace - I high lighted it just a bit with my black glaze pen. Happy Birthday is from my Label Maker, why did I put off buying that for so long? I love that thing! Then I went through my button box and found misc. buttons a few of which are felt, thought they looked different. For the end I stitched the edges with my white gel pen and my black glaze pen.

It is a great sketch to work with - hope you will give it a go and join in on the challenge this week. The girls have gotten another great prize this week!

Hope to catch up on some blog reading today - while doing my "chores" of the day LOL! Have a great Tuesday!
