Outlawz Wednesday sketch challenge

I recently joined an on line group called Outlawz and decided to get off my u know what and try out some of their challenges... this is this week's challenge... to hop over to their blog and check out what other participants have come up with... there are some gorgeous ideas....

this is a sample of the sketch from Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Here is my take on the sketch... I am a bit rusty... so bear with me... hopefully they will get better...LOL...
I used some Kraft card stamped on the dots in dark brown dye ink and ran it thru my wizard with the distress harlequin background. used my Tim holtz vintage photo to add some color to the raised areas.

the image was stamped with Kaleidacolor Autumn and layered on orange, green and dark brown card to match the inks.

A close up on my star which I added distress stickles to and a little diamante

Close up of my Cowgirl image I added a Hessian rope to her hand as added texture.

thanks for popping round...

shamela ;p)


  1. Beautiful card Shamela. Love your image and how you colored it. Thank you for joining The Outlawz "Saddle Up for the Sketch Party".

  2. hello ladies.. thanks for popping round and taking a peek... To Mel: I used a Kaleidacolor ink pad... the Autumn one.. to get the coloring... quick and easy... LOL... especially nice with a solid stamp like this one. ;p)

  3. It's great seeing a familiar (South African) face on The Outlawz, Shamela. I love that card you made for the Sketch Challenge. I hope to see your creations in many more. Did you know that there is a Birthday Card Challenge every Monday, and a Scrapbooking layout Challenge every Saturday?

    Love Jen
