This is my FIRST Scratchboard on Ampersand Board!! Whoo Hoo!! - :clap:

Jenny Dalleywater did a scratch of my dog Spike and I was so intrigued, I thought I would give this medium a spin, so in honour of Jenny enticing me to try this artform...

I want to dedicate my first "real" scratch to her, thank you Jenny. :heart:

I remember what you said when I was asking you about Scratching, you said, "I would have to come to the Dark Side", or something to that effect. - :eek:

This Scratchbord is called "Welcome to the Dark Side"

This is done on a 5x7 inch Ampersand Scratchbord. :D

Thank you so much Robert, I was really, really touched by your comments and you have done a lovely job on this very original scratchboard. Guess you can feel the difference between paper and Ampersand now. You are driving a Rolls Royce now. If you favour the style of your latest board, then check out Matthew Jarrett's work. He is a master at what he does. His website is http://www.chiarostudio.net and you can also see him on Wet Canvas under the name XQB. Well done and here's to the next one.
