From The Heart Stamps: Sketch 83; Twist – Use Sponging Technique

It’s MONDAY and time for a From the Heart Stamps Sketch challenge with a twist!  I’m honored to be asked for the second time to be a guest designer for From The Heart Stamps for October and November.  I love the images Faith creates and the team is is just such a treat to work with. I would love to have your support by jumping over to the challenge and entering a card.  Each entry earns a $1.00 prize that can be collected and used for free images.  Isn’t that cool?

This sketch was really fun.  I used Fishing Birdbrain and colored him with Copic Markers.  To incorporate the twist of sponging, I used a sea sponge and some distress inks to establish the ground and sea.  I created the sentiment from “Milo’s ABC’s” from Lawn Fawn and found the gone fishing embellishments in my stash but to jazz them up, I took a marker and outlined them in black because they were monotone brown.   I also like the woodgrain paper because it reminded me of a wood plank.  I finished the fish off with a fish eye and called this fishy done.

I hope you find inspiration from mine as well as the other fabulous designers at From The Heart Stamps.
