Ismaki Sketch 4
I have based this card on the sketch at Ismaki. I found this quite a hard sketch but came up with this card in the end. I have coloured Edwin with Prismacolors and Sansador and sat him on the steps. The actual stamp is Edwin sat on a pencil which I bought as he looks so cool with his baseball cap. I also stamped the pile of books and then cut 2 off for another embellishment. The papers are from HOTP.
Just about time to go to school now. Have a good afternoon - what's left of it!
