A Gem of a Challenge - sketch

This week at A Gem of a Challenge we have a fab sketch created by Katie... I was having a very bad crafting day and haven't made a good job of the sketch, but I'm sure you all will!



I've used one of Janet's cute new owl images - this is 'owl in hat' and you can buy it on its own here or in a set of Mother's Day owls  here.  I used Prisma pencils again, but I'm still learning when it comes to matching up colours with them, so the papers I meant to use didn't go at all once I'd finished colouring!  After a search through my paper stash I found these - possibly kanban - not perfect but they go better than the ones I wanted to use.  Added card candy, fabric flowers, a button and 2 ribbons all from my stash.

Me and Dex woke up with yet another cold today... wish all these blimmin' germs would leave us alone for a bit!  I'd planned a crafty afternoon, but I feel a little nap coming on, so I might shut my eyes... just for 5 minutes... Hope you're all having a good weekend :o)
