SCRS August Sneak Peek - Day 2

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 of sneak peeks for the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps August release! Today we are peeking Traveling Josh!

I paired the image of Josh with some map patterned paper from the October Afternoon Thrift Shop collection. I thought it was perfect for Josh, who is sitting on his suitcase and looks to be ready for his vacation. I love how he is content with his headphones and reading his book. I colored him with Copic markers and cut him out with Spellbinders Long Rectangle Nestabilities, making sure to cut around his foot so it wouldn't get chopped off... :) The sentiment reads "Life is Short.. Read Fast".

I'll be back tomorrow (release day) to show you the final image. All 3 August images will be available for purchase in the store! Be sure to visit the rest of the SCRS designers for more peeks of Traveling Josh:
