Great Catch {MFTWSC55}

It's time to get sketchy with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club and sketch 55!

This week's sketch is nice and simple and works for just about any image! So no excuses...play along!!!

I inked up the fun Fred Bear Goes Fishing image. Isn't he just so freaking adorable!!!
Pin It

He's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I gave him a base coat of E21, then I added the rest of the browns by dotting the colour on, and finally I went over it all again by dotting on more E21 to help blur the lines a little. I also added in all the grass so I could ground the tree, otherwise it just seemed to be hovering over the pond. The trunk of the sheltering tree die-namic is cut from patterned paper and the leaves are cut from sour apple felt. The patterned papers (except the tree trunk) are from the October Afternoon Campfire pad.

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 MFTWSC55. 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!
Be sure to head over to Kim's Blog to view the entire list of design team participants...there's plenty of inspiration for you with today’s sketch!

Here are the die-namics I used:

Thanks for stopping by!

This is super, super cute Karen. I'm lovin' the burlap and felt tree and the texture that it adds. Your coloring is fab too.
