Feeling Sketchy | Sketch #79



Here I am with my first post as a Design Team member over at Feeling Sketchy.  It's a lovely group of ladies and I am sure I will love working with them all.

This challenge is sponsored by Molossi who very generously offer a $30 chipboard and bling prize pack for the winner.


The Design Team are using digital stamps from Bugaboo Stamps and they are also offering 7 digital stamps to the challenge winner.



So on with the sketch we're playing with.....



I'm using this adorable stamp which you can find here.


Isn't he a handsome doctor?

I opened my stamp in Photoshop and re-sized him to fit inside a 2.5" circle.  I also "cut apart" the sentiment and put it back together in a straight line to suit my design better.

I decided to stray from the sketch a little bit.  My card is a standard 4.25" x 5.5" size and I ran my banner horizontally rather than vertically so I could use it to ground my sentiment. I used watercolour pencils to colour him in, being very careful to not run my printer ink.  We have a laser printer but I find my little Picturemate inkjet photo printer gives a crisper and cleaner result.




I hope you'll play along with us at Feeling Sketchy- don't forget there are prizes to be won!
