Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 380 - Sketch

What a day yesterday. Rain, sleet/ice, hail and snow in a short time span leaves a person confused. Good thing it's Tuesday because I'm sure that means a new Tuesday Throwdown challenge. Today's challenge is sponsored by Sasayaki Glitter and it's a (insert a deep breath here for my sake) sketch!

Sasayaki Glitter provided Party Chooks for my use. Yes, I had to look up the word chook...duh! I should have guessed the meaning from the image, color me red in the face.

Here is the sketch.
Not too complicated and very pleasing to the eye, even for one who quivers in her boots at the thought of a sketch challenge.

The chooks are colored with Prismacolor pencils. For the 3 strips, I used yellow paper that is embossed with balloons and stars (trust me, it is.) The card base is 5" x 7" . I kept the image larger and mounted the "tabs" a bit past the card fold and used fun foam for the 3 dots. The happy birthday sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly and filled in with colored pencil. Kept the color palette on the primary side because they are happy colors for me.

Here is my take on the sketch using the very cute "Party Chooks".
Time for me to go and for you to check out Sasayaki Glitter's shop. Fair warning, lots of things to  look at so allow appropriate shopping time 😁. Just make sure to leave enough time to enter the challenge for your chance to win.


  1. Hi Birdie,

    Oh wow, I can't believe how lovely your pencil crayoned images look. I keep forgetting to use mine, you may inspire me. Your card is bright and lovely and I'm sure someone special will keep 'tweeting" about it to everyone.

  2. Love the bright colors you used on your party chooks! Isn't this an adorable image?? Great design too with the sentiment below them! Awesome job!
