Birds Decorating

Happy Monday I hope everyone had a great weekend we had some lovely spring weather here so naturally I decided to make a Christmas card!!


I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch 51 for my inspiration.  I inked Stamping Bella's Birds Decorating Trees with versafine ink and stamped the image onto watercolour paper.  I coloured the image with distress markers (tumbled glass, broken china, barn door, vintage photo, peeled paint & forest moss.  For the ground I coloured with a pumice stone distress marker then went over the colour with walnut stain distress ink.  The shading around the tress is done with weathered wood.  On the decorations I used a gelly roll pen for the string and added sparkle using stickles in Xmas red.   The ds paper is MME's Signature Christmas.  I added an MFT die-namics scallop border and some kraft ribbon.


You still have time to play along with Bellariffic Fridays this week, which is this sketch.

Email your card to Em by Thursday to be included on Bloggabella's Bellariffic Fridays blog roll.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!!
