Mallard - Female

Wednesday, June 8, 2011


If you haven't already heard, and you are a sketch fanatic, then you will want to check out this link over at i(heart) 2 stamp. Every month Jen has a sketch for you to try, and this month it is sponsored by Stamping Bella! 

I love doing sketches, I just don't do them enough.  So for my card today, I'm using a Green Bean Baby stamp called Jackson the Champion.

I started by stamping Jackson on bella's bestest paper with black memento ink.
I  pulled out my very neglected Copics to colour him up. I must say the hair turned out much darker than anticipated.  I kept adding colour to get shading and before I knew it, it was too dark, so took my blender and pulled some of the colour off.

I matched up the colours for his clothing with my new 6x6 pad  by MME called Fly a Kite.  I must say MME has come out with some fabulous papers this year!
I also used a sizziz dot embossing folder for the red square - love the dimension it gives rather than plain c/s - I need to use this folder more - love the dots!
So there you have it - my June SFYTT!

Have a great day, another hot one here today - yesterday it reached 109 with the humidity factor!! too hot for me.
