I do a small ATC (Artist Trading Card) exchange, once a quarter. I sold my saw, so I'm not able to cut boards down to the correct size anymore (2 1/2 x 3 1/2). I remembered someone saying something about Stampbords. Well, they're white, but otherwise, they're the right size and they're Ampersand. So, I ordered some. This is my first one. I just experimented. I did have a photo to work from but just eyeballed it. I worked loose (another rarity for me) with Derwent Inktense, Watercolor, and Graphitint pencils and some other things hanging around. I'm working hard on several other scratchboards but this was a lightweight. I sort of like it and will be experimenting with it some more.

I am so sorry I'm so far behind, but I've finally got it started. This is Lauren's black and white. I had to color the eyes right away, I find it unnerving to see these white orbs staring at me. They've got a long way to go, I just needed some color in them. Off to scratch more and have breakfast before going to work.
