DeNami Sketch Challenge #8

Hi there! It's time for a brand new challenge at DeNami Design! This time around it's a sketch challenge! I LOVE sketch challenges, especially when I need a little MOJO boost! And just look at this super fun and versatile sketch from my fellow DT gal, Wendy:


Soooooo many possibilities with this one, my crafty friends! Here's what I came up with:


Aren't those little owls from the Owls Stamp Set PF32 totally ADORABLE?!?! I popped a few of them up to add some dimension and thought they'd look extra cute against a woodgrain embossed background!


I stamped the top green panel with the leaves from the Elegant Floral Stamp Set PF37. I stamped the "Owl Always Be Your Friend" sentiment onto a white rectangular panel and then used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp the bottom part of one of the owls. Then, I stamped the complete owl, colored him, cut him out, and paper pieced him onto the panel.


The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Joy Ride Collection. You know I just can't resist using polka dots! HA!


So...who's ready to ink up their DeNami Design stamps and play along with this sketch challenge?!?! Remember...there's a FABULOUS prize to be won!!!! Click HERE to head on over to the DeNami Design Blog for all of the challenge details and more inspiration from the AMAZINGLY talented DT!!!

L-O-V-E. This just might be my favorite Lisa card...however, there are so many close seconds. I love the shading you did on the owls, the leaf background and the woodgrain was a great touch!
