#61 Cheers Dude

Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - sketch
This week's prize sponsor - Kenny K

We've not had a sketch for you to work to for a while here at I ♥ Promarkers but I think this is a nice simple one for you to play along with this week, and don't forget you can always rotate it should you wish. The DT are all using fab images from our sponsor, Kenny K and the one I have chosen to use is called 'Cheers Dude' and I think he is just so perfect for a male card. This handsome hunk with his pint-pot in hand is great for toasting the 'birthday boy' even if they don't actually drink themselves, don't you think?

Coloured with Promarkers, needless to say, I paper-pieced his polo shirt so that it had a nice weave to it, and having matted & layered according to the sketch I added a sentiment ticket from, though recoloured it to match the papers and give it a different 'edge'.  The wording also helps to give it a young feel so more suitable for a late-teen/early twenties guy about town I reckon.

I hope you will play along with us this week and we look forward to visiting your blogs.
