My Hero!

I'm quickly catching up with some of the challenges from the last week now that we are back from holiday! I do like the sketches on Sweet Sketch Wednesday and the current one is this:

I've used a digital image by Lee Jacobs which I bought from here, coloured with Promarkers plus black and grey felt tips (I've yet to buy these colours in Promarkers!) plus china-graph white pencil for highlighting.
The plain green backing is actually a card blank that I cut down with the printed from Polkadoodles Sugar Birdies cd and I thought it went perfectly with the image when I was sorting through all my scraps.

The sentiment is computer generated and I've added two buttons with jute bows to comply with the sketch.

  • Printed backing papers: Sugar Birdies from Polkadoodles
  • Image: Digital image by Lee Jacobs coloured with Promarkers and bought from here
  • Sentiment: Computer generated
  • Everything else: My stash
