2Sketches4You - Sketch #19

Well I don't know where the time has gone this week, seriously I think I started about twelve different cards and only finished a few. Here's one I have finished using the fabulous sketch #19 over at 2Sketches4you by the very talented Laura, thank you!




I've had my eye on this bird die for a long time and it arrived the other day, I have simply cut it from some BG dp and inked the edges! The frame that the bird is sitting on is a BG stamp that I have used with two inks and trimmed around. How nice is it that one of my little oval nesties fit's into cut the shape perfectly! It's been finished off with a gem brad! The leaf is die cut trimmed and stamped with sentiment. The main background has been inked with distress inks and then embossed.


Materials:
Paper: Basic Grey - offbeat, heavy weight cartridge,
Stamps: Basic grey - Bug/B2 Bitsy, PTI - Mixed Messages,
Die's: Nestabilities - ovals, rectangle, Sizzix - Bird with flower, leaves,
Ink: Distress inks, colourbox Q's - mix,
Other: Lace from stash, embossing folder, PM gem brad, 3D foam,
And to show you my eye candy for valentine's woo hoo


My fiance and son,

Thanks for stopping by, will catch up with you over the weekend, HuGs Kim x
