Put Your Feet Up!

Monday, 28 October 2013

Hi everyone, I hope you're all well and not been blown away, not that we had too much wind but I know a lot of other places did!

We have a new challenge today at Seems A Little Sketchy and 2 sponsors!

The first sponsor is Bugaboo

 who are offering 7 digi's to one lucky winner!

The second fabulous sponsor is QKR Stampede

Who are offering 5 digi's to another lucky winner!

Here's the sketch for the next fortnight which is a flashback to the very first sketch the blog had as we've now had 50 sketches in total!

Our sponsors kindly gave us images to work with and I used one by QKR Stampede, here's what I did

I coloured this laid-back fella with the following copics: Clothes;YG97,95,93,91,17,13,11,E39,37,35,33. Bird; 100,W9,7,5,Y17,15,13. Pig; R22,21,20. Ground; E44,43,blender. Sky; B01,00,000,0000.

The papers I have used are Origins by Basic Grey and I edged each piece with Brushed Corduroy distress ink.  I thought it would be fun to have him lying in the sun and as the sketch allowed for it, I cut a yellow circle with an inverted scallop circle die by Spellbinders, and I stamped a LOTV sentiment in the sun which suited this chap down to the ground!  The raffia and flower are from my stash.

The inside has the whole sketch replicated to compliment the front.  I haven't added another sentiment so as it can be used for anything, from a birthday to retirement or whatever.

So take a lazy stroll over to Seems A Little Sketchy to see what the rest of the DT have done.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
