Elisabeth Bells World Sketch - June 2011


Untitled-40

The image I’ve used is ‘On Time For Class’ from Whiff of Joy and I’ve coloured him using my ProMarker and AquaMarker pens.

The DP is a mixture of Tim Holtz and Fancy Pants and I’ve distressed the edges then inked them using Brushed Corduroy.

The stars were cut out using my slice machine and quickutz die.

A few weeks back I received a lovely package from Letraset with some goodies that they wanted me to try out and one of the products was Safmat. This is a self-adhesive sheet that is transparent and you can print things on it and then stick it down onto your project. So I tried it out and printed off a digi film strip image that I downloaded for free and I also created a sentiment.

I hope that you enjoy the rest of your day.
