Paper Smooches Sparks--Designer Draft sketch


I still had the Surf & Turf set on my craft table from the last Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge when the new one went live, so I whipped up a simple scene to play along.  This week's challenge is a sketch:




I love this goofy bird and his little friend standing on the pilings.  I decided to use a white card base so that I could stamp directly on it (although the pelican was fussy cut and popped up), but the "sky" looked a little plain.  I dripped some turquoise glitter paint onto the background to give it a little more interest.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White, Kraft)
Stamps:  Paper Smooches (Surf & Turf, Sentiment Sampler)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black), Tattered Angels (Peacock Chalkboard Glimmer Mist)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (woodgrain impression plate), corner rounder
Other:  Prismacolor Premier pencils, May Arts (twine)

This will be another great card to leave for my husband to find while the kids and I are visiting my family next week.  He has to stay behind and work, and he really starts to miss us, or so he says.  :)

We're halfway to the weekend!  Have a good one.
