Whimsy and Stars


Happy Tuesday! I've got a cute little card with a summery image from Whimsy and Stars Studio, this little guy is called Watermelon Boy. This is only part of the cute image, I cropped him into a square for this sketch. My kiddos love watermelon in the summer and I do, too. Nothing beats it for a sweet treat (and a healthy one at that!).

My sketch comes from Sweet Sketch Wednesday #164. Another fabulous sketch from Arlana this week.


And I also made this for the Dare to Get Dirty challenges going on over at SCS. They are for fan club members and all the deets can be found here.

Image: Watermelon Boy from Whimsy and Stars Studio
Ink: printer
Paper: Copic xpress, PTI Pure Poppy, Simply Chartruese, Watermelon print from Pink Paislee, green dot from Cosmo Cricket
Extras: copics, nesties, dimensionals, PTI ribbon, button and twine, Sharpie white paint pen
