Bloggers' Challenge -- It's a Sketch!

It's been awhile since I've been able to join in the fun with the Bloggers' Challenges. This week, Lisa, our list Mom, gave us a sketch. I kept pretty true to the original sketch and this is what I came up with.....although I have to admit to beginning with a completely different idea! Somehow this cute little guy just kept calling me....he needed to be inked!

That sweet little lamb is from Pun Fun, a set I haven't used in some time....not sure why, 'cause I really do enjoy working with each of the images. The face and heart were water colored in using markers and a blender pen....used the "marker off the lid" technique, an old standby. The heart (not sure you can tell) was glittered, as were the hearts on the impressed squarish panel background.

Not quite sure yet, but this may be one of my Valentine's cards this year ...I'm really happy with the way this came out....kinda sweet, don't you think?

Stamps: Pun Fun, Fabulous Phrases, Create a Cupcake (heart)
Inks: Basic Black Craft, Real Red Classic
CS: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Real Red
Misc: 1 3/4" Circle Punch, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Word Window Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Pinking Hearts Border Punch, Big Shot, Heart EF (non-SU), Perfect Polka Dots EF, Circles #2 Die (for red circle layer), Scallop Duo Die (still available!), Clear Embossing Powder, Real Red Mini Brads, Paper Piercer & Template, 2-Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Dimensionals (under scallop circle), Real Red Satin Ribbon, Stamp-a-ma-jig (couldn't live without it!!) , Blender Pen

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting! Can't wait to see what the others have been up to....won't you join me? (See thumbnails below.)
