SugarPea Designs Sketch Challenge 8

**Please Scroll Down for my Lil' Inker Design July Release Post**

Soooo, I'm a little late. Rarely happens around here, but I got my dates mixed up. sorry! I do have a quick sample for you using the current SugarPea Designs Sketch. It's a good one, and I know you'll have some fun with it. 

I made a simple birthday card using the adorable new Great Catch stamp set. While I love coloring these great stamps, they also look great on their own.. 

Here I kept the sweet little fishin' Raccoon neutral. Stamping him in gray in on some Grout Gray card stock. I did add some very light, subtle shading with a T1, R1, and G40  along the edges to make him pop a little. I did color up the fish and added some glitter. 

I also stamped his arm and the fishing pole, cutting them out and piecing them on top of the original stamped image. I added a bit of thread to give a realistic look to his fishing line. 

Here's a quick look at the sentiment. I stamped that in Hot Fudge ink

The rules are very simple…
