Bluebird Inspiration

July 10, 2010 at 9:51 am 6 comments

I decided to play along with the SCS Inspiration Challenge (IC240) today. It’s not often I do because I have no imagination or creativity to interpret the inspiration we are given! Today’s was not too difficult – I knew I had a bird and it looked similar to the inspiration photo. I also wanted to give the Create with Connie & Mary sketch challenge (CCMC 106) a shot. The only thing I changed from the sketch sample was the circle scalloped frame since I was running out of room. Here is the card recipe:

Card Stock – Crumb Cake, Brocade Blue, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler
Stamps – Weathered BG, Friends 24-7 (both SU), sentiment from Gina K.’s “Tag Lines”
Ink – Versafine Black, Brocade Blue, Creamy Caramel, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa, Wild Wasabi (markers), Tim Holtz (Ranger) Distress Ink in Antique Linen
Accessories – yellow grosgrain ribbon, Bow Easy, Gina K. button, white embroidery floss, brads, nesties, corner rounder and dimensionals

That’s it! Thanks for having a look today!
