Warm Moose

Hi!  Today's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches comes to us by the talented Jennifer Timko and she has created a fabulous one to inspire us to create.

Even though I don't need any more Christmas cards, I couldn't help bringing out this adorable moose one last time for the season.

I masked him and the rug and sponged some yellow and orange distress inks onto the panel.  Then I colored him using Copics.  I actually stamped the sentiment directly onto the white panel, but the stamp must have had some fluff on it and the image came out all jagged so I had to cover it up with the white-embossed panel, which I matched to his sweater.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  The DT have created some gorgeous card to inspire you, so please check them out.

Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid, Versamark, Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks

Oh Karren. This is just so sweet! I love that little moose and your colouring is absolutely amazing! Love it! Such beautiful, bright colours!

Well, he is just adorable. I love how he is surrounded by the soft golden glow and he seems to be looking up so lovingly at someone (or something). And the goof with the sentiment was serendipitous I think because the green layer at the bottom is a nice touch!
