Happy weekend, everyone! For this week's Sweet Stop Sketch challenge, we are challenging you to make a non-traditional Valentine. I have to admit.....I found this to be tricky particularly since there are so many cute Valentine's Day papers around now yet they are all in traditional colors. Then I remembered that I had this super cute Birdie Brown digital stamp called "A boy with a rose."
I colored him up with copics and here's the run down on what I used:
Skin: E11, E00, E000 and R20 and R30 for cheeks
Hair: E35, E53, E51
Hat and stripes on shirt: B37, B45, B41
Shirt: B00 and B0000
Shorts: E34, E31, and E30
Shoes: E59, E57, E55
Rose: R29, R24, R05, YG17, YG13, YG11
I sponged some A Muse latte ink around the image. Have you tried those inks yet? Love them! I used PTI white, kraft, spring rain, dark chocolate and vintage cream CS and the DSP is from the Jillibean Soup Homemade 6 Bean Soup 6x6 paper pad. That pretty ribbon is is 5/8" brown/white grosgrain two tone ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel. I used the PTI Tiny Tags stamped set to make that heart and I stamped it with A Muse french roast ink.
Here is the sketch:
