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.

Freshly Made Sketches #55 - 5th Birthday

Hello Stampers,
Today's post is for the Freshly Made Sketch this week. I coloured in the images with my Markers and you wouldn't believe how many goes I had but I finished it eventually. I love Real Red but it is so easy to smudge and transfer the colour where it shouldn't be. Does that happen to you? LOL. This card turned out exactly as I had planned from the start, it's great when a card comes together like that.

Stamps: S/U's Patterned Party, Papertrey Ink - Boy Basics Game On
Card and Papers: Whisper White, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, DSP Big Top Birthday
Markers: Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Summer Starfruit
Finishing Touches: Real Red Grossgrain Ribbon
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Spellbinders Classic Circles Nestabilities, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals
Thanks for visiting today.
