Introducing Jack

The current Sketch and Stash challenge is the following sketch:

And I've used my brand new Polkadoodle Candy Doodles cd which has not even been released yet but because I am part of the Design Team, we get to play before anyone else! All paper based elements are from the cd - the ribbon is from my stash. The cd has its premier on Create and Craft / Ideal World on Tuesday 21 July - more details are in my sidebar.

I've even bought some new felt tips (yes felt tips!) to colour in the image! I saw some half priced brush felt tips in Tesco's - £1.25 for 30 so I had to buy! Because they are not the fancy Copics they don't actually blend, but as I'd not really harshly coloured the image, I could go over it with watercolour pencils. And I added a bit of white gel pen for highlights.

I think the felt tips have worked really well! The backing papers, image, sentiment and paper button are from different elements on the new cd and all co-ordinate really nicely! Jack is the friend of Polly Polkadoodle and he looks as mischievous as Polly!
