Saturday Sketch Time!

This week Lauren had us go back though all of the past sketches and choose a favorite to play with again. She called it "So Long Ago Saturday Sketch" and starting in March, we'll be doing this on the last Saturday of each month!

Here is the sketch that I wanted to play with again.... Here's what I came up with...
On Sunday were going to a birthday party for the younger brother of my sons friend. We don't really know him that well, but I remember that he was Superman for Halloween, so I decided to ink up my "Super Billy" image from Pink Cat Studio.

I used SU markers (Summer Sun & Not Quite Navy) to ink up the sentiment, punched it out with my 1 3/8 circle punch and inked the edges with Brilliant Blue. Then I layered it on top of a 2" star that I cut with my Cricut "George" cartridge.

I colored the image with my Copics, and then used my Sakura glaze pens for Billy's boots, gloves and mask.

I thought I was finished at that point, but once the card came together, it looked like Billy needed to be holding something in his hand.

Birthday balloons perhaps???
I stamped out the balloon image from SU's "Crazy About Cupcakes" set, colored them with my Sakura glaze pens and cut them out. Then I poked a small hole in Billy's hand, pulled a black thread through it and attached the balloon bouquet.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Here's what the rest of the sketch team did:
Alicia, Dawn, Kim, Kirsten, Kristy, Maria, Kendra & Tamara
