Tosh has a great new sketch for this week's Viva la Verve Challenge! I also used 2 different EFs (Petals-a-Plenty by SU & CB's large dots) for Wendy's F4A challenge. I stamped the branch twice using Sage Shadow ink (an old but not forgotten SU color). I love my little $1 bin birdcage stamp from Mike's...stamped it in Chocolate Chip, sponged the edges slightly in Antique Linen distress ink, paper-pieced the lower portion of the cage (since it never inks up dark enough to my liking), added Stickles to the tiny hearts on the birds, & lastly added the heart bling. I "hung" the cage on the branch using chocolate baker's twine. TGIF & TFL!
STAMPS: Swan Song (Verve), Happy Hello (Verve)
PAPER: DP by ? (I split a pack with a friend and she has the cover page - lol), Sage Shadow, Neenah Solar White
INK: Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip, Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink
ACCESSORIES: Labels Sixteen Nesties, Oval punches (SU), Baker's twine, Lace trim
