Jen's Sketch For You To Try!



Yes, I am a week behind but so what?? What's your point??? Hehe. It's the story of my life. When I'm working at my craft table I always have my computer running with several windows open at the same time. Each window will have different challenges on it and when I'm creating, I'll often find a challenge that I want to do or that fits in with one of the DT items I am making at the time. This week I had Jen del Muro's sketch challenge open and I used it while playing with a new Magnolia stamp!

Edwin is a cute little sailor in this image and his hands are made so that you can fit the little board in them with a saying stamped on it if you like! I stamped Edwin on Wausau bright white cardstock and coloured him in using my Copic markers. I stamped the board and sentiment on a piece of Creamy Caramel cardstock and cut both images out. I used my handy dandy new Fiskars fingertip cutting tool to carefully cut around Edwin's hands and slipped the board underneath them. I stamped the sentiment by My Favorite Things from the Can Ya Dig It? set on the sign. The cardstock and all patterned papers were sent to me in a DT package by Magnolia. I used my Nestabilities to make the half circles, added some ribbon and Basic Grey brads, pop dotted Mr. Edwin and sparkled up his wings with Stardust Stickles. Then I added some highlights on his cheeks and shoes using some white acrylic paint.



Well, today I am off to work from 9-5pm. Boo-stinkin'-hoo!! I hate working Saturdays. Oh well. Hope you have a more enjoyable day than I will!!!
