Another SKETCH Challenge...

This time...it's a sketch presented by 2Sketches4You and it's sponsered by the doodleicious Starving Artistamps!! What can you do with this sketch?





Here is what I did:

Don't you just love how Jelly's tentacles are mimicked in the background paper. I cut out the sentiment by hand. Nope...everything does not have to be perfect. And the longer I stamp, the more I realize this. Just "go with the flow" and it'll look good!

I thought I'd show a detail of Jelly. He was embossed, as usual, but I stamped him 2 times and propped up the head on dimensionals. (What is the term for a jelly fish "head?" Is it a body? or a head?) Crystal effects were used for dimension on the eyes and bubbles.
Be sure to link up your design on the 2Sketches4You blog to be in the running for some fun Starving Artistamps. Remeber, SA is blog hopping soon...with more new releases and give aways!

Before I even read your post, I was thinking all the swirlies in the DP matched the jellyfish tentacles perfectly! I'm big on hand-cutting too, because sometimes its just too much work to get the templates and cutting devices out.
