Isn't this little guy just the cutest? I fell in love with him the moment I saw him . . . He started as a drawing by my oh-so-talented friend, Kristin Soboloski. For a glimpse of more of her fabulous designs, swim on over to her blog - Artfully Inking (link at right). For this card, I decided to catch up on this week's sketch challenge over at SCS. I stamped the turtle in black StazOn ink on watercolor paper and used my aquapainter and celery, olive, and caribbean inks to color him in. I added a sentiment from the Fancy Flexible Phrases set in the top left corner. I matted two pieces of coordinating patterned paper from the Petals and Paisleys collection onto my Old Olive card base. Next I added some satin reversible ribbon and popped the main image up on dimensionals. Be on the lookout for more adventures of "Turtle and Friends" soon!
