Sketch Saturday Week # 168

Happy Saturday! We have a brilliant forecast of sunny weather today and so we are going to try to enjoy every second of it. We are going to a Beach Party/Diploma Day at the sailing center. My eldest passed another level this year and we are so proud of him. He is also really, really happy! I am sure it will be a lovely time.

Today’s card is for this week’s Sketch Saturday Challenge and once again, I have used the new Whiff of Joy Henry’s Adventure stamps. This is truly a must have collection because they can be used for so many occasions!

I love how sweetly this little froggie is posing for Henry. My boys should take lessons from him! I colored up the image with my trusty Copics and then added some background shadows with some prisma color pencils. I thought this Tim Holtz film strip was the perfect accessory for this image and so added a nice long strip of it.

The papers are Whiff of Joy and so are the sentiment and banner which was made with a WoJ metal die. In fact, everything is WoJ!

As you can see, I  flipped the sketch upside down, moved the sentiment to the right and the embellishment upwards. It just looked nicer that way with this image.


Here are the product links for you. I have had feedback that you guys enjoy having the links like this so I will try my best to get them up on my posts for you.



This weeks Sketch Saturday challenge, is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!

Hope you get the opportunity to play along with us! Have a fantastic day!
