Bird on Branch

Hello there, welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm sharing a CAS card, one that I am quite happy with.

My process today;

I lay a mesh (one found on a pototo bag) on the white CS and sponged Squeeze Lemonade, Crushed Olive and Wild Honey.  Then stamped the branch from the Hero Arts Forever set in Wet Cement; and add colour using colouring pencils.  I ink the bird with Chipped Sapphire and Crushed Olive and stamp on scrap, fussy cut and adhere to panel.  Stamp sentiment from Hero Arts Say It All set in Chipped Sapphire.  Finally embellish using SSS Tiny Flower Sequins.


Thanks for stopping by, I wish you a lovely day!!
