Hello everyone! Today I'm playing along with this weeks I Heart Sketches with a twist Sketch #155 over at the From The Heart Blog and this weeks Summer Garden Challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.
I used the adorable little digital set called Bee Happy Birdbrain from From The Heart Digital Stamps shop and paired it with some patterned paper from Echo Park's Petticoats & Pinstripes Collection. Too cute, right? You can download this set for free in the From The Heart Digital Stamps Shop HERE.
I didn't stray to far from the sketch, in fact I replicated the sketch exactly except I added two little embellishments to the upper left side of my patterned paper. To start I folded a 9" x 4 1/2" piece of light pink cardstock in half to create a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" card base. One my card base was created I cut two pieces of patterned paper, distressed the edges, printed my sentiment, and layered them over my card base. I printed the Bee Happy Birdbrain digital stamp onto some white cardstock and colored the image with some Spectrum Noir markers. Once I had my image colored I took my 2 1/2' circle punch and punched my image out, distressed the edges, and adhered it to my card base. To finish my card and add a little bit of dimension I added two little yellow enamel dots to the upper left hand side of my striped patterned paper.
Here are the Spectrum Noir Markers I used.
Bird- CT2 & CT4
Flowers- CR11, BT4, CR2, GB3
Flower Stems- DG2 & DG3
Bee- GB4 & BGR1
I hope you enjoyed my card today! Thanks for visiting!
