So Sketchy Sunday!

It's time for another Sketchy Sunday - and this sample is pulling double duty today!

First, it's the sample for the sketch (duh!) and 2nd, it incorporates "sky" - a challenge posted by one of my fellow Ocean's 11 bloggers! I hope you like it!



Sorry for the dark background - the lighting was not working for me today. The owl and branch are from a set by Pink Paislee, patterned paper from Close To My Heart, Dew Drops added for a subtle embellishment and the skey was sponged with various CTMH inks.

Here's the sketch for this week:



I used the branch as the band area in the center of the card but you can use whatever you would like! The sketches are flexible so rotate, flip, and change it up to make it your own.

Once you create your card, post it to your blog or other online gallery and use the keyword SSS06. Then come back here and fill out the information in Mister Linky below directly to the place where we all can visit and check out YOUR artwork and take on this sketch.

Be sure to post your completed work by Friday at noon in order to be included in a monthly drawing for blog candy!




Have a creative week!

Mary - your sketch is perfect for your card. I'm hoping I'll finally get to participate in your sketch challenge this week. Life keeps interrupting my stamping plans :)

I LOVE that owl! How fabulous is he (or she?) And being able to get "double duty" to cover both the sketch and the challenge is awesome too! Well done!

I really love this card! I am so into owls right now and this is about one of the best owl images I've seen. Great job covering both challenges.
