GinaK's sketch challenge...

Yesterday GinaK unveiled her new stamp sets... during which she had a few contests going on throughout her reveal party one of which was a card sketch. I decided to play along with it. I also got my hands on some new prisma pencils yesterday at Micheals with the 50% off coupon.... and I got the 48 pack with a bonus of 12 verithin pencils for $30... you know I had to color something with them.



I just love this house mouse image... It is actually a wishRak image I got a few months back. I think I need to invest in this stamp before I run out the images.
I decided to take a close up of the mouse and his strawberries. I used the gamsol magic technique with my pencils... you can find several tutorials around the web on this technique.

For my sentiment I used my new papertrey Ink set Year round puns... The birthday sentiment fits this image so well and I do need a few birthday cards this month...

I need some black brads but it seems I have run out so I grabbed my black copic marker and colored two silver ones in... Love my copics... I also took the hearts out of my papertrey ink set my punny valentine and created the row of hearts across the top of the card... well I am off to see what other kind of inspiration i can find around here while I clean... have a great Sunday afternoon...

Supplies:
Stamps: My punny Valentine, year round puns, house mouse image
Ink: black stazon, purely pomegrante
cardstock: wild wasabi, purely pomegrante, black, whisper white
Accessories: silver brads, black copic marker, gamsol, prismapencils, copic glitter pen
