My Favorite Things

Hey, Gullfriend!

Happy Saturday! I’m playing along with the MFT Sketch Challenge #426 this week and finding out that I really love participating in sketch challenges. They’re such a great jumping off point.

I’m still dreaming of summer, so I thought of doing a little seashore scene with the Seaside Seagulls stamps.

I started by drawing the rocks with a Copic multi-liner and then I stamped the bird on the left. I masked the rocks, bird and horizon line using eclipse tape. An easy way to mask hand drawn elements is to place the tape over the top and trace the outline onto the tape. Then, fussy cut the tape with scissors and you’re all set.

I then stamped the bird on the right and drew a little more wooden pier. I masked them too and then airbrushed the sky with Copics and the MFT mini clouds stencil.


Leaving the rocks masked,  I inked the sand area with Pumice Stone distress ink and then heat embossed the sentiment with Wow! detail white embossing powder.

I colored the seagulls and the rest of the elements with Copics.

Here’s the sketch from the MFT Challenge blog:

Hope you’re having a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
