You Make Me Smile!

Just a quickie today! I have my sister staying today and she is leaving later on so don't want to spend the morning on the computer!

My card today features a very cute hAnglar boy who has been coloured with prismacolor pencils and blended with sansador. I have followed the sketch on this weeks Friday Sketchers which is nice and simple which I like so you can put your own take on it.

The edges have been inked with Hero Arts Shadow Ink called 'Soft Stone'. I am not very happy with the inking on the edge of the image. I noticed a little tiny black smudge on it. So I took a rubber to try and rub it out, but the paper started tearing and leaving it worse than it looked before. So I tried to cover the ripped off parts by inking it a bit more! It doesn't show up too much on the photo but I had wanted my inking to be a bit more subtle! I should have just left it as it was!!

You might have been expecting a card from me today where you could go and visit Janny and Dena's blog to check out how they have done the same image.....well you might just have to check back tomorrow!!

Before I go, have you seen the gorgeous new sneaky peeks from Sugar Nellie? These are 2 of the new stamps that are coming out in the next few weeks from Mary Hall.Perfect! Can't wait for all this new rubba!

Thanks for popping by and I will be back tomorrow!

Have a very sunny Monday!
