Jacksonbelle Sketch Challenge #2

I did a little stamping last night to help me wind down from our crazy weekend! I decided to work on a project that I started early last week. I had the main background done but needed to finish it off with a main image. I had originally had a snowman image stamped for this card but it just didn't work for me so I decided to try out this bird. It is stamped on the white oval and then I stamped it a 2nd time on a scrap of white cs, cut it out and popped it up using a foam dimensional. I thought it worked much better than the snowman. I stamped the bird using Palette Moulin Rouge ink and then very carefully painted it with Burgandy Shimmerz paint. I highlighted the white areas using SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I am now caught up with the JB sketch challenges. I can't wait to see what they have in store for this week!

Supplies used: Bird stamp from Inkadinkado, Sentiment stamp from DRS Designs, SU CS, Debbie Mumm DP, Shimmerz burgandy paint, Rhinestones from Michael's and Amuse, Misc. ribbon.

I hope everyone had a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
