Cock-A-Doodle

Birthday Sundaes      Challenge #48-Animal Birthday Card

First off, I have to give credit where credit is due. I got this sketch from {Freshly Made} Sketches that they had a challenge for on Feb 29th. When I saw that Birthday Sundaes wanted an animal birthday card this set of stamps and papers came to mind immediately and this sketch was perfect for showcasing this cocky rooster. 
I used the technique of blending markers on the stamp, if you just huff you get a slightly bolder watercolor effect, but if you spritz lightly with water you get an even more blended watercolor effect. Since the pattern paper was so bold I wanted the rooster a little more bold.

Just an added update to my schedule for the next couple of weeks. I will probably be kind of hit and miss because I'm trying to take an on line art class and participate each day. When I get some things made from class I'll share more. But, on top of that my hubby has a little bit of a medical problem he's getting checked out Wed and he may have to have a short hospital stay and some TLC nursing. I told he and my Mom both that they had to stay well for this particular 2 wks, but circumstances have proved otherwise for him, fortunately my Mom is doing pretty well as long as she goes slow and steady.

I have been remiss in welcoming my new followers lately, but if you guys can hang in there when I hit 100 followers I plan to give away a little package of blog candy.
So, thank you all for following my art journey and for all the great comments you leave me. When I get everyone well, I'll be back to trying to be a good follower also.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥
