Just My Sketches May Challenge

Have you played along with Just My Sketches before?  It's a newish challenge blog that's quite different than the others, and very fun to play with!

For this challenge site, you are given one of 5 songs to pick from PLUS a sketch.  I go and listen to the songs on itunes and let my mind flit to what stamps I have that might work with the ideas of the songs, and then simply follow the sketches, which are great.

So, for this one, I picked the song FROM A DISTANCE by Bette Midler.  When I listened to it I heard these words and knew what I would do with the card:

From a distance the world looks blue and green,
and the snow-capped mountains white.
From a distance the ocean meets the stream,
and the eagle takes to flight.

And here's my card:

The image is one from my stash of snagged images, coloured with copics, accented with gold finger paint, and using a white watercolour to accent the snow.  I thought the feather caught the idea of a bird flying overhead, too.

I hope you'll play along with us this month!


  1. Great card, and thanks for the link to that sketch site it sounds fun. I think this is perfect to go with that song. Love that image and your coloring.

  2. What a great card for a guy! The feather really caps it off.

  3. What a great card for that song!! I love it!!

  4. Wow...this is beautiful! (Love that feather, too!)

  5. What a wonderful, rustic scene. You did a great job coloring it.
