Hello friends. Finally had time this week to play along with the ladies over at the Merry Monday challenge, and this week we are to add a bird to our Christmas card. This was perfect timing as I had wanted to play with my new Winter Woods set (PTI). I used the layout from the current December Sketch challenge over at HLS, and came up with this CAS card:
I started with a white card base and then used a Lil Inkers Stitched Circle die to cut the circle out. I used distress inks (Tumbled Glass & Salty Ocean) to color my background, and then added some splattering to mimic snow. I used Smoky Slate to stamp the branch, Real Red for the berries, and Smoky Slate and black inks for the bird, which I pop dotted for some dimension. I WOS'd the berries for a little glimmer and shine, but unfortunately I can never seem to pick that up with my camera! My sentiment and the little snowflakes are from Neat and Tangled's Bright Baubles.
There's still time to play along with the Merry Monday challenge, and you can find all the info you need right HERE. There's also the whole month of December yet to play along with the sketch challenge over at Happy Little Stampers, and you can find all the info you need to play along there right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
