TIOT35 - Meet Matthew!

Welcome to this week's Try it out Tuesday from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! It's sketch time this week (TIOT35), MY FAVORITE!!!

I just had to ink up another of the cutie pies from the Victoria Case for SCACD Hearts & Hugs Collection 2! This is Matthew. I have two boys myself so I am alllll about the boy images! Isn't he perfect? My older one is into dinos so this was a lot of fun to work with. All eight images are available now so be sure to check them out if you haven't already. Remember, you can get the WHOLE SET at once for a significant cost savings (25% off). Can't beat that!

I started off by stamping him in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloring with Copic markers. Did some highlighting with the Ranger white gel pen when all the coloring was done. After he was colored I drew in the floor and colored the floor and walls. I used Petite Oval Nestabilities for the main image. The patterned paper is Basic Grey - Offbeat and Recess (I think). Punchies for the sentiment and the awesome metallic Robin's Nest Dew Drops in teal for my corner embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to check out all the sketch inspriation from the SCACD design team and on the store blog. I hope if you have time you play along with our challenge and Try Out this fabulous sketch!
