Not sure if anyone else does this, but I do. :D

Started this one today, needed a break from looking at the computer screen. Sorry for the crappy image. I snapped a pic with my phone. My phone apparently does not like the black! lol

Wow, that's gorgeous! I tried to do a scratchboard a few months ago. It was of a kitten and even had the image outlined for me. I still managed to turn it into a total disaster!

I sketched this one and then lightly traced the lines onto the board. I have some good, good boards that I want to use, but it has been awhile so I am using one of the cheaper thin paper types.

This is what I normally use - http://www.dickblick.com/products/ampersand-scratchbord/

This is what one above is on - http://www.dickblick.com/products/scratch-art-scratchboard/

That's beautiful! I have done a few scratchboard pieces but they really aren't my cup of tea. You are doing great with this.

This is where it was at when I stopped last night. I probably wont be working on this at all until the evening. :)
