Sketch 30 and Midweek Coloring Challenge - a "twofer"

With the dog stoned on the bed after a good dose of Xanax for storm phobia (and a very challenging walk in the wet grass to take care of business --he kept falling over!), I needed some downtime.. a luxury of being retired :)

Love this weeks OWH sketch.. very very versatile and I used the colors in my craft room as inspiration for the coloring challenge which is an adorable image from Michelle Perkett. Decided to try my new Derwent watercolor pencils and the Aqua Painter which is still a learning curve -- love this technique!


  1. We've had dogs who were terrified of storms before too.

    Your card is just gorgeous, I love the colors you used and that sketch is a good one isn't it? I've made a couple cards using it too and really like it. Thanks for playing along with us again this week at Operation Write Home!

    You need to enter your card into the Michelle Perkett Studio challenge too, it's an anything goes so your card is perfect! Here's a link for you:

  2. Wonderful card! I love how you've used the flexibility of sizing the digi so that its a close up and cropped in such a nice way. Very creative!

  3. I just love how your image spills out of the box! Beautiful coloring with those Derwents (I love them!) and great take on the sketch! TFS!

  4. Absolutely precious!! You did an awesome job with this image!!

  5. Your cards is wonderful. I'm not very familiar with coloring with watercolor pencils, but you sure did a great job on this wonderful Michelle Perkett image.

    I like how you were able to incorporate this weeks' sketch too! Great idea!!


  6. Great taken on of the sketch and the image is so sweet:o)

  7. Your card is really sweet. I love the way you painted her hair; and I love the blue & yellow theme.
