I love combining the color and sketch challenges. Here's my take on a couple of older ones. I recently received this adorable Bird Assortment stamp set from Jacksonbelle http://www.jacksonbelleembellishment...let/StoreFront and realized that the owl was perfect for this sketch.
The color challenge called for Chocolate Chip, River Rock and Blue Bayou. I substituted Buckaroo Blue for Blue Bayou and used Whisper White as my neutral. My card base is Buckaroo Blue stamped with the Sanded background stamp with Buckaroo Blue ink. I stamped the owl with Chocolate Chip Craft ink onto Whisper White cs, paper pierced the three rows down the left side and layered it on River Rock cs. I added a couple of Rain Dots over the owl's eye. (It looks so cute in person!) This dp matched perfectly with the color challenge, so I punched out the half circle with the pink Marvy circle punch and glued it to the white cs. Finally, I stamped the funny sentiment on the card base with Chocolate Chip Craft ink.
Phew...another birthday card for my collection. TFL - Regina
