This is a combo of the sketch challenge and the DDIC (Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge).
I stamped the birds ( Sparkle N Sprinkle ) with the chocolate ink and colored them with Prismacolor pencils. I used the Out of the Box Nestie technique (tutorial HEREl) to cut them out, but I used a nesting rectangle set from Quickutz. Masking the birds, I sponged on a little of the Neptune ink.
After matting on a chocolate brown layer, I tried something a little different on the white layer. I embossed the white using a piece of fine mesh vinyl. I love how it turned out! It looks and feels just like artist canvas. I left the small piece white but on another, I brayered over it with the Neptune ink, stamped my feathers background (Inque/Sugarloaf) w/ the chocolate ink and colored them in w/ markers.
The green bg was done w/ the forest branches Cuttlebug folder. I added some punched out circles as faux brads.
Thanks so much for looking and we would love it if y'all would play in our challenge. For all the info and more deets on this card, please visit my blog: The Write Stuff
