Friday Sketchers #63 ~ My Week to Host

Friday Sketchers Week #63

Happy Friday Everyone! This week it is my turn to host the Friday Sketchers Challenge. I prepared a really simple sketch, there is a fab prize from Simon Says Stamp and I hope you will get the chance to give it a go!

I have used another of the new Whiff of Joy Party Animal stamps. This one is called Fred Celebrating Elephant and I think he is just too cute! I really love elephants so this stamp was a joy to color. I used Copics to color the elephant in and then I took an old piece of terry-cloth with some blender solution on it and just dabbed at the image. You can see how it created that very fun textured look. I then added some Twinkling H20s to the elephant and the background. I just love the effect that it gives.

  • Stamps: Whiff of Joy Alison Acton Animal Stamps
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU Soft Sky, Green Tea DP (both retired)
  • Coloring: Copic markers, Twinkling H20s
  • Embellies: SU Felt Flowers & Ribbon, Craft Secrets Adhesive Gems & Pearls

    Here is my sketch:
