Yeah! It's Friday...

...but before you know it the weekend will fly by and it will be Monday again. You will drag yourself out of bed and probably look pretty similar to this character from the Doodle Factory. This guy brings a smile to my face every time I see him. I received some stamped images from a dear talented friend, but after I played with him I knew I had to have him. Here is a card made up from me playing with the image. He is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with re-inkers. I really like the richness of him, but I did go out of the lines in some areas. I'm still learning and trying to figure out how to control the flow using reinkers and an aqua painter. The paper is SU and In My Mind's Eye.

Very cute and funny card! I love those adorable monsters from Doodlefactory (and I have you to thank for finding Doodlefactory - your background on skater Ian!) You did a great job with him! And your coloring looks great - I certainly can't see any "out of the lines!
