A Bird in the Hand...


Hi there! Well, it's another late post for me! My internet was out until about 9pm -- just in time to pop in at the MFT release party -- so I'm finally getting around to posting today's Sketch Challenge card! I used Can Ya Dig It? by My Favorite Things. I can't get enough of this Sultry 6x6 pad! I cut out a 3 1/2" circle with my Fiskars Circle Cutter, then I cut it in half.I paper pieced the dress and gloves and colored with Copics. I sponged around the image with Soft Sky and River Rock inks. The hat was cut out and mounted on dimensionals. Instead of having the girl gardening, I thought it would be cute to have her holding a little friend! :) The bird was stamped on the same paper as the background. I cut it out, sponged the bottom to give it some dimension, and mounted it on a rolled up glue dot.

I still have some Mothers Day projects to share with you over the next few days -- I hope you'll stop back! Thanks so much for visiting! :)
