SKETCH CHALLENGE: PATCHPAL SCARECROW

This little guy was used for this weeks sketch challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.

He is new for October from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS. I think he is just the cutest!
I stamped him onto watercolour paper and used my In Colour markers and my blender pen and aquapainter to watercolour him.

The Textured Dusty Durango cardstock was run the cuttlebug with my Bird Call embossing folder. The Kraft cardstock strip was run through my crimper.

The edges were distressed and sponged. I used the Scorebug and white gel pen to create my faux stitching.

I had to add some Raffia which I thought would be appropriate for our little scarecrow friend.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps~Patchpal Scarecrow
Paper: Textured Dusy Durango, Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Whisper White, Watercolour paper
Ink: Black Staz-on, Not Quite Navy, All the In Colour Markers
Accessories: Scorebug & white gel pen, Bird Call embossing folder, sponge daubers,blender pen, aquapainter, Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon, Raffia, Crimper

Thanks for looking.

Gloria
