This is the sketch this week:
The sketch worked great to feature the image and I decided that I would stamp the owls onto colored paper and then cut them out. The inking wasn't perfectly clean but I liked that it gives the a vintage feel and that sort of set the tone for the whole project.
I also rediscovered this yellow patterned paper - it's from Trader Jane Recollections stack and I thought it had a great sort of 70s quality to it. I chose browns, oranges and greys for the other papers to keep with that 70s feel.
I topped the eyes off with bling - I love those chrome bling eyes on the owl on the left. Finally I added a sentiment I've never used before - "You're a hoot" - how fun is that?!
