All of us at the Outlawz Sketch Challenge are excited and happy to wish you a great new year!! This week is our first challenge of the new year, but guess what, we have 51 more of them for you in 2015!!!

We would really love for her to take a visit to our Sketch Challenge!
Wednesday Sketch

For the month of January, Beccy from Beccy's Place is our sponsor. She will give a prize of 3 digis from her store to our January winner.

Here is the Sketch that Sandra picked for us to use!

Beccy let each of us pick a digital image from her shop and when I saw Bird on a Wire, I knew that was the one I wanted!!  So here is my card using Bird on a Wire from Beccy's Place.

I colored my image with Copic markers and layered it onto some papers from my paper stash and then finished off with a sheer pink bow and some Jolee's embellies.
Copic colors used:  G40, G000, BG11, BG93, BG90, BG000, W0, E15, E19, E70, R30, R39 and Copic Opaque White for some accents on the bird.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown - Favorite Embellishment (Ribbon and Bow)
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Clean and Simple
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by and hope you will stop by our challenge. Have a great day!


  1. How pretty, Darcy! I am looking at the background....is that paper, or just your creative genius? It just looks like a warm summer day, that was captured with a camera! Beautiful!

    1. Thanks, Janet! The background is done with copic markers and colorless blender. Glad you liked it!
