Saturday Sketch 812 - Zany Zebras

It's time for another Saturday sketch!  Every Wednesday, Splitcoaststampers posts a card sketch and it's the challenge I participate in the most.  Sometimes beginning a project can seem daunting because you just don't know where to start.  That's where sketches swoop in for the win - they give you a place to start so all you have to do is pull out your paper, ink, and stamps!  You're still being creative AND you're enjoying yourself.

The stamp set I used for this week's card was #1 on my list when the Annual Catalog was released in June - Zany Zebras!  These little guys are so frisky and cute!  Maybe zebras aren't like that in real life, but with stamps, anything is possible.

How can anyone resist this little zebra's joy?  He/she almost reminds me of a puppy.  

Here's an easy coloring tip: stamp the zebra in Melon Mambo ink, then use a Blender Pen to go over the image.  The Blender Pen will pull the ink around the image to fill it in.  I mention this tip in the video below.  

Watch the video to see how to make this card.

Save the written tutorial in your idea file or Pin to your Cute Critter boards.
