Sugar Creek Hollow Sketch Challenge

This week, Sugar Creek Hollow has a sketch challenge. Here is the sketch...


...and here is my card...


Stamps: Barn Swallow (Sugar Creek Hollow), Fancy Flexible Phrases (SU! retired)
Paper: K&Co
Accessories:Copics Airbrush System, Flower, Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool, MS Branch Punch, flat back pearls, Spellbinders Fancy Tags


I colored Barn Swallow with Copics, and then added some detail with a feather brush and distress ink.


I used my Copics Airbrush System with blue and brown to color my flower. I always try to match my Copics colors to the color in the paper I am using.

I am also entering this in A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge which is anything with an animal on it.

Thanks for stopping by today. Go check out the beautiful digis at Sugar Creek Hollow, and have a great weekend!

Very pretty and soft Julie. I dont have the airbrush but this is just as soft as can be. I keep coming back over here looking at it because it is so pleasing to the eye. Thank you for your hard work! tracy

I chose the same bird for this challenge and it shows how versatile the stamps are. They look completely different yet both beautiful! I'll have to try the bird in blue some day because I love how pretty you made it look! Nice job!
