I'm a total sucker for all circle elements when making a card so I knew I'd love love LOVE this sketch, and I did! This is going to be another go-to sketch for me in the future.
I decided to ink up Fred Bear Takes a Hike and paired him with papers from October Afternoon's Campfire collection.
I stamped Fred with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured him with copics. I wanted him to have a furry look so once he was all coloured and shaded, I went back over him with all the same shades of brown but adding little dots everywhere instead of solid brush strokes. I'm really happy with the result. And that snail...does he not just call out for googlie eyes?!? I couldn't resist and they make me smile!!! I used my simply scallops medium die-namic to create the red polka dot layers and curled up the scallops for a little texture. I used four shades of MFT cardstock (which is fabulously thick and sturdy!), Hot Fudge, Berrylicious, Orange Fizz, and Gumdrop Green. To finish it off I wrapped some Cappuccino Twine and tied on a red button.
Here are all the sketchy details:
There's a prize each week for one participant, chosen at random. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week a keyword is assigned to the sketch, and this week's keyword is MFTWSC30. All you need to do to enter is upload your card to the gallery at Splitcoast and enter the given keyword in the keyword box during the upload process. After the deadline (noon Eastern on Tuesday) we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher!
