Bird in a Wreath

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge with Penny Black products.

After smooshing some distress ink onto my card base, I added the Whirl Wreath (51-151) and coloured the berries with a white coloured pencil. I then coloured the bird from the Nestled die set (51-722) using distress inks and nestled him into the wreath! For the other two elements of the sketch, I used the branch from the Peaceful Pines die set (51-705).

Interestingly the sentiment caused me the most problems! Everything I tried seemed to big or too small…. When I was rifling through my older Penny Black sets, I spotted the fabulous word tree in the older Season’s Wishes set (30-201) (it’s from 2013 but still available). I used a couple of post it notes to mask off the sentiment above and below the ‘Season’s Greetings’ part of the tree, and stamped! I really liked how it turned out so I was was pretty pleased to have found that sentiment!

Thanks for stopping by!
