My card-making days are most often inspired by one of my design team assignments, or a challenge, and this day was no different. The minute this one popped into my inbox, I was intrigued by the out-of-focus background - I was determined to recreate it with inks!
Armed with the smooth side of a quarter sheet of TH water color paper, and a few Distress Inks, I'm really pretty happy with my results... for SugarPea's September 2019 Mix it Up Challenge #59:
Inside: of course I had to call! it was that, or a TWEET!
This sweet little bird is one of a dozen fun images in SugarPea's Everyday is Christmas - one of the 4 calling birds! I borrowed the colors from the gorgeous feathered friend in the photo, and a few of the details from the Sketch, while letting that background shine.
Thanks for stopping by... let the weekend begin!
[Tags, and sentiment, are retired SugarPea sets that I still adore.]
Inks used are: hickory smoke, worn lipstick, peeled paint, and chipped sapphire!
