I am a little late doing my sketch challenge card today as I had a couple of friends over. We had a fun day and of course I showed off my new owl stamps, they even help me narrow down my chose of which owl stamps to use for the sketch challenge while they were here .... I think we narrowed it down to 3 different ones ;)
Anyway I also wanted to do the color challenge this week which was to use the colors: Blue Bayou; Sahara Sand and Chocolate Chip ...... this helped me finalise the decision as I wanted to use one that I could use a blue to match the blue bayou .... at first I had thought of coloring the owl blue .......... oh sooooo hard for me .......... but I am actually going to do it some day .... I am, I am! but not this time ;) Anyway as you can see I settled for Olivia's sunflower but of course in my card it isn't a sunflower but a blue flower, hehehehe!
This is a fairly simple card and pretty self explainatory so I won't bore you toooo much with details. The flowers I used on the side of the card were originally white ..... I colored them using the same alcohol marker I used to color the flower on the image, I think I will get more white flowers as then I can just color them whatever color I need at the time ....... I expect will also still buy colored when I find ones I like!
