Beate Weekend Sketch #42

I finally inked up my Pun Fun set! All of you enablers who kept making the CUTEST cards with this set made me get it! LOL Since I decided to use the skunk from the set, I thought keeping the card black and white would be neat. The "splash" of red happened when I got to the flower. Since I didn't have very much striped black and white paper, I thought I'd mix polka dots and stripes. It's definitely different! :) I colored the skunk with a Basic Gray marker and then removed some color with my Aquapainter. The outline of the skunk and the flower were colored using Copic markers. Make sure you check out what Beate, Cambria, Jenn, Laurie, Mary Jo and Sharon have come up with for today's sketch! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Friday! SUPPLIES USED: Stamp- Pun Fun (SU); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine); Paper- All Dressed Up Stack, black, red (DCWV), white (Georgia-Pacific); Accessories- Jumbo circle punch, Mega scallop circle punch, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, Word Window punch, paper piercer, Basic Black marker, black polka dot organdy ribbon (Darice), white gel pen, flower eyelets (Oriental Trading)

Ooh thanks for the idea! I actually just got this stamp set. I thought the skunk was a squirrel till it was pointed out to me lol. I also have a whole pad of black&white patterns/prints that I just had to have but have never used (grrrr) & now I've got something to go on. Great card!
