Final Outlawz Sketch Challenge This Year

It's our last challenge at Outlawz Sketch for 2020.  We're sponsored this month by Leigh SB Designs.

For my inspiration this time I'm using Sunshine in her Hair.  Only instead of doing in in summer firey colours I've used icy ones.


I think I must have had my monochrome head on in the last two cards I've made.  But if you look closely there is a little pop of violet around the image.  I've used my Copics to colour her with.  Once coloured I fussy cut her out.  I couldn't keep all her hair which was disappointing because my scissors were too fat to get around all the detailing.

Over the top of the sun element I've sprinkle some DecoArt glitter to add some wintery sparkle!


Here's our sketch for the next two weeks

I've used a doily behind the image to frame her.


My design papers are from Lili of the Valley, I've used some white satin ribbon with silver edging from my stash, a couple of snow flake buttons and a couple of blue glitter stars.  Finally a sentiment which I've had in my stash for ages as well.

Thanks for popping by for a look today
We hope to see you at the challenge

Happy Christ-mask!!!

 

Thinking a little outside the box for this Christmas card.  The imaged is called Masked, you can find it here in the shop, where you can get 10% off all imaged by quoting SKIANDREA 10 at check out.  However, if you're lucky enough to be a member of the DigiMojo Facebook Group and Crafting of Hue Facebook Group there 30% discount vouchers lurking in there.  It expires on 14 December so you'll need to be fairly quick.


I've coloured the image with Copics using traditional Christmas card colours.  I wanted a fairly simple non fussy card so I can post it, so there's quite a bit of white space on this one.



The Happy Christ-Mask!! sentiment was printed at the same time as the image.  The design paper (some I got from The Ribbon Girl when I was lucky enough to be part of their DT) has been cut with a die I got from Dies to Die For.

Can't wait to get back to some normality, hope you're all doing well <3

Apres Ski

So it's out last challenge of the year at All Dressed Up in the Facebook Group.  This month we'd love to see your SQUARE cards.  A nice easy one for a busy time of year :)


I'm doing a double today, the image I'm using is called Take to the Slopes, but if you're fortunate enough to be part of the Kit & Clowder Facebook group you may be able to nab yourself this as a freebie!


I was in a bit of a rush this month so I've done a nice simple single layer card and coloured it with my Copics, leaving a lovely scary white section (hahaha). I've used this for a sequin, some rhine stones and a Christmas sentiment. 

Don't forget we also have a blog challenge, you can find that here.

A Little Surprise

 

We have a little surprise for you today at SheepSki Designs in the Facebook Group.  Sandra & I have teamed up to bring you a free image for Thanksgiving


Sandra drew the original sketch using some flowers from her garden.  I added some leaves and stems for her and converted it into a digi :)

The image you can see here has been coloured with Copics.  I've then fussy cut it to go on the card.


The background was created with a stencil and some Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz.  I've frame it with some black card, added some ribbon from my stash that I've had for ages (from Santoro I think it was), finally a few clear sparkly gems and a wood chip sentiment coloured with black Copic.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it, we hope you enjoy the digi.

Light it up

 

It's Wednesday Sketch time again at Outlawz, not quite sure where the last two weeks went!

We're sponsored this month by Jan's Digi Stamps, I'm using Brighten the Holidays for my inspiration.


The image has been coloured with Copics, I've used two different embossing enamels and some Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz to distress the edges.

Here's our sketch for this next two weeks.


My design papers are from First Edition and the other one is a bit of a mystery.  I've lots the top of the pack so if anyone recognises it maybe they can tell me :)


I've finished off the card with some tiny red gems, and instead of a sentiment I've used the design paper to spread the season's wishes!

Thanks for popping by for a look today, we hope to see you at the challenge.

That time of the year




Here's a close up of it.  I've created a single layer card just to showcase the image.

I dig out my Copics and decided to colour the scene, just to see what it would come out like.


All I've added is a sentiment "that time of the year" made up from Tim Holtz sticker.

Thanks for popping by for a look today, hope to see you at the challenge

Carols

Where is the time going, we're in November and it's new sketch time for Outlawz Sketch.  This month we're sponsored by Jan's Digi Stamps


I'm using a cute little image called Caroling, I've coloured it with Copics and then hand cut it to go inside some design paper cut with a Spellbinders die.  Added to the image is a little embossing enamel for a snow effect.

Here's our sketch for the next two weeks.


I've used a mixture of design papers from First Edition, Maya Design and something else that I've lost the top of so I don't know who's it is (sorry).


For the sentiment I've added a wood chip Scrapiniec one and a wood red star.

Beautiful Seahorse

I've flipped mine design round and missed the sentiment, mainly because I couldn't find one I anted to add at the time :)

Snow Glow



I had my blues out so decided to do another night sky card, creating some snow glow, or at least that's what I was trying to do,


The image was coloured with Copics.

I've coloured the nose and beaks is orange to give the card a little pop of colour.


I also had embossing enamel out so I decided to make a snowy scene with it.

Don't forget All Dressed Up also has a challenge blog as well as the Facebook group.
