MMSC39 Little Man

Thanks!!

Hello everyone - it is time for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and we love that don't we!   I always look forward to Priscilla's sketches but have to say that I just LOVE this one.  When I first saw the heart I though 'okay - this is going to be interesting.'  I started by drawing a heart and cutting it out as a template and was happy with it, but once I added the white heart behind it, it seemed to 'come to life!'


I have used this adorable digi image from our weekly sponsor Faith Skrdla from Designed2Delight Digi Stamp Shop.  I knew I would love using this darling little boy as soon as I saw the digi - but how adorable is he now that he is coloured....I just love that little hand in his pocket - awww, so adorable!!  I coloured him with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen, then cut him out and popped him up on foam dots, as you can see by this photo.


I just had to add another photo as I can't resist him.! LOL!


The butterfly net and flowers have also been cut out and popped up on foam dots.  I have used a silver glitter pen around the edges of the net and added Kindy Glitz to the wings of the butterfly!


That is enough of me, now for this weeks sketch.


Don't forget you can have 'Your Choice' over the the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, there are two versions of the sketch - you can check it out here.

I would like to thank our Monthly sponsor:
