Wednesday Sketch Challenge - August 8

Is it just me or does the time seem to be flying by?  Summer is almost over and another Wednesday has come and gone!  The Sketch Challenge for The Outlawz for August 8 is below:

And here is what I came up with after struggling with this a bit.  I made my background by applying several colors of Distress Inks with blender foam on an applicator to glossy card stock (a Tim Holtz technique).  Then I flicked water on the background and dabbed some of the excess up with a paper towel.  The flower is a Penny Black stamp from 2003 and one which I have used numerous times.  The Corner Flourishes #2 are from Sizzlit.  Finally, the corner punch is by EK Success and computer generated the sentiment,

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that you will join us at The Outlawz and play along in our challenges.

Wednesday Sketch Challenge - August 1

I am afraid that my other preoccupations have been taking priority recently and I haven't had a chance to post any new cards.  So to catch up a little, here is last Wednesday's Sketch Challenge at The Outlawz.


And here is my card for August 1.  The image is a Hero Arts one which I have had for awhile and never used.  Think I will have to use it again soon as it was easy to color and make into this simple card.

Thanks for stopping by and there is still time to come on over and join the fun at The Outlawz Challenges.
