Beate Weekend Sketch #37




It's time again for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I have been in need lately of more masculine or boyish cards. I don't know if the ribbon I added on this ruined that. . .what do you think? Maybe I shouldn't have tied the knot and just left it as a band across the card? I used the Rubber Soul set A Day at the Zoo. I have had this set for a while, but this is the first I've inked it up. I just love the bold images. For this crocodile, I added some lining with a black marker to go with the color scheme. Be sure and check out what wonderful things Beate, Cambria, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, Mary Jo and Sharon have come up with for the sketch. Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- A Day at the Zoo (Rubber Soul); Paper-Whisper White, Basic Black, Wild Wasabi (SU); Ink- Wild Wasabi, Basic Black (SU); Accessories- Spots and Dots and Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug folders, ribbon (May Arts), paper piercer, Basic Black marker.

I love the black accents on your croc. And I think the ribbon is good. It's not like it's a BOW or anything.

I love this card! I've been wracking my brain trying to think of something appropriate for my nephew. He's a young and incredible 13. He LOVES to laugh and I think this stamp would work.

I feel terrible that I don't agree with everyone else, when it comes to ribbon on a male card the only thing I do is wrap it around cardsock. As it is said "to each his/her own", that's what makes art. TFS.

LeAnne said...

This is great---love these colors and I think the ribbon is fine!

This is absolutely incredible, so full of texture. I love it. I just finished having my kids at school writing paragraphs about alligators.....this fits so well...must ask Amy to borrow her Zoofari set.
