Head in the Sand?

There seem to be more and more digi artists around each day, some good, some not so good. Another wonderful and talented artist to add to the list is Isabella's Sketchbook, who have just launched their first challenge, which is a sketch. I've tried to be restrained and just bought a couple of images from Isabella's shop, this gorgeous ostrich with his head in the sand is one of them.

My card covers a few other challenges: Charisma Cards has Animal Magic for this week's challenge and Pile it On has Animal-riffic. The Simon Says Challenge theme is "It's so distressing" and Creative Card Crew has Vintage/Aged. Last but not least, Totally Papercrafts challenges us to Go Digital.

I coloured my image with Copics and Distress Inks, distressing the edges of my image with scissors. The dotty orange DP is heavily inked and torn. The DP is Basic Grey Sugar Rush, the eyelash yarn is from my stash, flowers are Prima. Sentiment printed onto vellum is computer generated.


  1. Just catching up! This is really a fun image, and love the way you have captured the water.

  2. This is great, Anne. I really like your choice in background papers. It really makes the image pop. Nice job!
