Fab Friday #3 - Birds in the Woods

Hello Friends,
Today's post is for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge this week.  A new challenge for me, finally getting to play. I embossed the background with the Woodgrain embossing folder, colouring it with a stamp pad before embossing and cut the banner strips from Designer Paper.  I used Markers to colour the image and sponged the background with Bashful Blue and then matted onto a Delicate Doily die cut.  Finished off with some pearls and a couple of banners on the inside.

Stamps: S/U"s Serene Silhouettes,
Card and Papers: Soft Suede, Whisper White, DSP Patterns Stack, Neutrals, Subtles and Regals
Ink: Soft Suede, Always Artichoke, Bashful Blue
Finishing Touches:  Pearls
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Sizzix Woodgrain E/Folder, 1 1/4" Square Punch, Sizzix Sizzlits Large Delicate Doilies, Sponge, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals

Thanks for dropping by today.
