Sweet Sunday #20


Here is my take on this weeks "Sweet Sunday Challenge". I can't believe Karen is on #20 already. I remember doing her very first sketch challenge and it seems like it was just yesterday. I rotated the sketch this week so it would be better suited to my image stamp.

Card details:
I used SU's bayou blue and kiwi kiss with a DP from S.E.I. The bayou blue is embossed with the branches CB embossing folder. The image is a clear set made by Hero Arts for Archivers. I triple stamped the birdie, colored all three with SU ink and an aqua pen, then cut out one, embossed it with clear embossing powder and popped it with dimensionals over the first image. I embossed the 3rd birdie and just cut out the wing and popped that on top of the second birdie to give even more dimension. I colored in the flowers and leaves with an aqua pen and SU matching ink and then added green gemstones to the 3 bigger flowers. Finally, I added the 4 brads, paper pierced around the outer edges of the DP and the birdie image, added some small black dots to every other branch of the embossed blue pieces, doodled around the white rectangle that my image is stamped on and hand wrote the sentiment. Click on the picture for a close up look at the 3D birdie and the little black dots I added to the branches on the blue embossed paper.

A fun little sketch challenge! Hope you like it!
