A Sketch Challenge

I don't often participate in the challenges on SCS, not because I don't like them, but because I just never get around to it and then it's so late I figure why bother... But this weeks SC190 is really nice! I was so inspired by all the fabulous cards everyone was uploading that I just had to join in. I love, love, love High Hopes stamps! I have a bunch of stamps and images for creating under sea scenes. I think the mermaid is super adorable but I just couldn't resist Diver Dan! Look at him! I have a penchant for red hair, and maybe I shouldn't have given it to him...most boys find this a curse, but look how cute he is with it!


He's colored with Copics and accented with a Stardust pen. His mask, the pearl, and the bubbles have Diamond Glaze on them, and I used a clear gelly roll pen on his wet suit. I thought his flippers should have been darker but once the glaze when on, forget it! He kinda looks more like he's wearing a space suit instead of a wet suit! There is a glare from the flash too so that makes it look lighter than it really is. The images are all popped up including his face mask. I used the SU! word window punch on the sentiment and the ribbon is PTI. The starfish paper is from Creative Imaginations but I'm not sure about the polka dot...it was a scrap. The cardstock is Bazzill except for the white which is PTI, and speaking of turquoise, I also used in it Versamagic to lightly sponge around the sentiment and the circle. I also made dots on the scallop with a Spica pen.

Whew, I think that about covers it! Have a great night!!
