Everything just came together for me. I was happy with my coloring on the bird and also the designer paper that I chose.
The image is from a newly released set at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps- the peace of God. I really like this sweet titmouse image. I believe I have said before in a post that it looks just like the ones that come to our feeder.
I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and gamsol (odorless mineral spirits).
The layout for the card is this weeks sketch at splitcoaststampers. My design sister from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, Taylor Usury, was our hostess. I really like working with tilted panels as well.
My designer paper is from Basic Grey, the Indian Summer collection and the brown dotted paper is from Stampin-Up-the soft suede pattern pack.
On my white panel I used a cuttlebug embossing folder and sponged it with soft suede ink. I added ribbon in soft suede and used a button for my center to complete my card.
That's it for this post. So until next time.....God bless.
Some other challenges:
1. The Clearly Inspired blog has a patterned paper challenge #35.
2. Cute Card Thursday blog wants us to use at least 1 punch. I used 2 circle punches for my sentiment.
DYSU challenge blog has a friendly critters challenge. My little bird is very friendly.
Dutch Dare card challenge blog has a color/photo inspiration challenge. These colors are picked up in my designer paper.
