Tuesday Morning Sketches #193 - Bugaboo Stamps!

Good morning & happy Tuesday :) Hey, at least it isn't Monday any more!
It's the second week of the month, and at Tuesday Morning Sketches that means that besides a great sketch, we also have a TWIST for you to follow! This month's twist is a super easy one: BIRTHDAY! Create a birthday project using the sketch for a chance at being one of our handpicked winners, and the opportunity to win a fabulous prize from Bugaboo Stamps. They really DO have something for every style!


Here's our sketch:

I could NOT resist choosing this awesome Gus image

Supplies: Gus Golf image from Bugaboo stamps; classic small oval Nesties; scrap paper; Recollections green cardstock; Spectrum Noir & Sharpie markers

I had to twiddle a little bit to make it work, but I think you can still easily see all the sketch elements! I'm pretty pleased with myself over the colouring - picking colours for golf clothes was a bit of a challenge, but I'm happy with how the actual colouring is going. The googly eyes were an afterthought....since the alcohol markers don't smear my printer's ink, I forgot that DUH, water-based products DO smear it...and I tried to add some gloss to his glasses. Whoops. Googly eyes to the rescue :) 

This sketch is open until next Sunday, April 14th.  And, did you know - if you 'like' Tuesday Morning Sketches on Facebook, you can have access to the sketch the evening before it goes live?? I even remembered last night! (go me!)
