Sketch Saturday - 4 today!

Saturday 11 August 2012

My friend's little boy has just turned 4 and I really didn't know what to do for his birthday card! I've got lots of girly images but no boy ones so I felt the need to do a little shopping and update my stamp collection to include some stamps suitable for little boys. I came up with Cakey Watt by Stamping Bella and that was it. I may have also bought some more girly images too - oops!

Here is this week's fantastic Sketch Saturday sketch:

...and here is the card I came up with:

This little robot is just soooooooo cute - I love him! I coloured him with my copics and used the warm greys for the first time. They were a bit juicy and saturated the card in a few places causing some of the colours to bleed slightly which was annoying but I covered most of it up with more shading and a shadow outline.

I finished off with some bolt brads and some bakers twine and I printed the sentiment on my pc.

I'm going to enter this card in the 'My Heart Pieces' challenge this week which is to use designer paper, and the Paper Crafting Journey challenge which is 'Anything Goes' and the Waste Not Wednesday challenge which is to use your forgotten or neglected stash - I've had those brads for about 3 years now so they definitely qualify!

The Sketch Saturday challenge this week is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and there is a fabby prize on offer so pop on over and join in the fun!
