TDS Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Hello all! It's hump day and that means another TDS sketch challenge.

Here's my take on it!

I think I need to break out of my green color mode here! But at least this one has some brown and black in it! The Owl is from The Digi Shack and the sentiment is from Victorine Originals. The brown back ground panel is made with a paper bag and some vintage photo distress ink. I crumbled up the paper bag and then swiped the distress ink over it, spritzed it with water and let it run/soak up a bit. Then I hit it with my heat gun.

The Owl is colored with Copic Markers and I also dabbed on a bit of rubbing alcohol to his wings to resemble feathers - not sure if I like the effect or not. Added some yellow self adhesive pearls for his eyes and three small gold studs on the left hand side as was called out in the sketch below.

The cuttlebug leaf embossing folder was used on the green cardstock (Bazzill) and I used the cornice edge punch (MS) to make the tag.

Thanks for stopping by and drop in to The Digi Shack see what the other DT members did with this sketch!
