A Sketchy Man...

walked into a bar...(ha ha) just kidding...no strange jokes or stories...as usual I couldn't think of a more clever title! Today was the sketch challenge on SCS...here is the "sketchy irishman"...

Images by DRS Designs...



This was a fun sketch! I stamped the shamrock and beer mug randomly on my background rectangles and colored the beer mugs with markers. The mugs are outlined with a copic marker. This mug stamp is great and pretty versatile for the whole year! Great for football/baseball/basketball season, a great image for a masculine card - you name it! The scallop is the mega size...the Irishman has black glaze pen on his eyes with a touch of stardust pen. You may have seen him before and if so, you know he's a larger image...I love that I could punch out just his head for this sketch - being able to look outside the box with an image this size gives the stamp a whole new avenue of ideas! I stitched a frame around the center square rather than the usual perimeter of the card. I layered circle punches for the sentiment and added jewels over the stitches!

Thanks for stopping by...
See you soon...
