Freshly Made Sketches

Good Saturday everyone! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend. I ran some errands then retreated to my crafty space to create this card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I had the bird and tag leftover from previous projects, so this went together very quickly. I cut out the leafy Bouquet Background die from Green Parakeet card stock. I had a follower recently tell me I was the queen of polka dots and stripes and yep...I used them again here! I love the patterned paper packs in all the stock colors at Ink to Paper. Each pack gives you two sided papers of plaids, polka dots and stripes! 

Obviously I flipped the sketch to a vertical rather than horizontal orientation. The leaves extend beyond the card base so I'll have to use a slightly larger envelope than an A2 size. I color blended the bird with brushes and gently lifted up the wing "feathers" to give it dimension.

STAMPS: Feathered Friends Mini 1 (Ink to Paper).
PAPER: Bitty Big: Harvest Gold patterned paper, Aqua Mist, Green Parakeet, White (Ink to Paper).
INK:  True Black, Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, Lemon Tart, Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise (dye inks by Ink to Paper).
DIES: Background Bouquet, Feathered Friends 1, Charming Tags (all by Ink to Paper); Stitched Rectangle STAX by My Favorite Things.

Thanks so much for stopping by!                      ~Wanda

I just got that bird - and am definitely saving your card for inspiration - I love the mix of blended pieces and solid cardstock. And you've created such a lovely backdrop for him. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
