Happy Birthday You Old Bird

September 3, 2008

Here is a card made for the Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.

This card was made using stamps from the Bird Assortment collection of Inkadinkado. Owl stamp was stamped 3x on white cs with Jet Black Impress Ink. Colored the 3 images of the owl with Skin White, Cream, Pale Sepia, Apricot and Colorless Blender Copic markers. Cut out 2 of the images and layered it on top of the first owl. Extended the branch with another stamp from the same collection and randomly added more branches and leaves with still another stamp from the collection. Colored the branches with Light Walnut and leaves with Celadon Green Copic markers. Sponged the sky and clouds with Sky Blue ColorBox. Clouds were made by using an oval scallop and sponging heavier just around the edges of the scallop. Sponged Brocade Blue on the edge of the white cs and stamped sentiment with Chocolate Chip using sentiment from the same collection. Punched out some flowers using the reverse side of the DP Meadowlark and glue the flowers to the branches. Added lemon ice stickles to the center of the flowers. The main panel was mounted on to Certainly Celery then brown cs. Added dots with a souffle pen on the brown cs and brown dots on the green cs. Background paper is from the Chatter Box Chateau collection, Meadowlark and Chateau Stripe. Added a brown dotted ribbon from America craft were the 2 DP's met.
