Some Odd Girl's next challenge - a SKETCH!

okay, so at the Some Odd Girl challenge blog, we do the bi-weekly thing, every other Thursday. we have Stash challenges, hosted by MOI, which will encourage you to pull stuff that you have and make that your starting point. and then we have Style challenges, hosted by Kristy, which will provide a technique or something specific like a sketch to get you going.

i can't believe it's already been two weeks! it's thursday, and it's STYLE challenge day!

today, we offer you one of Kristy's awesome sketches (she's relatively new to the card sketches, but clearly she's a natural!):

piece of cake, right? i LOVED the sketch, and think this will be a total go-to dealio when i'm stuck. here's what i did using Ellie:

and a close-up, to show you how stupidly cute that little bird is! (YAY, Paperchase!)

when i was up in Canada for easter, my BFF sent me home with his entire collection of Prismacolor pencils to play with, and i'm in HEAVEN! GOOMIE, but they are so smooth and velvety and they blend beautifully. i need to invest! but first, i must find some actual Gamsol, because i'm using Sansodor, and while it works fine, it's a little more oily than i'd like and can leave a messy stain if i'm not careful.

anyway. play along HERE, and check out what the rest of the Odd Girls have done with the sketch (stay awhile - you'll be drooling in no time!), and enjoy some sneak peeks! we'll have a fabby little prize, plus our two favourite submissions will earn an Oddity blinkie for their blogs (wear 'em proudly!). :D

ANNNNND, each of the Odd Girls had a giveaway with their introduction to the Some Odd Girl design team, so visit their blogs, say hello, ogle for a bit, and check out the yummy candy!

back with some big happenings tomorrow, a new challenge for The TownScrapper, and OH! before you go, be sure to drop by and visit with us Design Dollies to see this week's challenges! the TRIFECTA is ready to be taken on, and there's some serious YUM up for grabs!
