Week 169 Sketch

It's time for another sketch!
This time drawn by Chrissie.


For my card this week I decided to make a little scene using the kite and cloud from Clearly Besotted's Sky's The Limit set.  It's finished off with the Congrats word die.

I used the Stampin' Up Build a Bird punch, cutting the birds from kraft card and adding some Distress Ink to shade them.  Sentiment is from Joanna Sheen and I've embossed a brick wall for the inside of the nest box.  Are they a couple, or a hen feeding her chick?   More cards on my blog.

Here is the gorgeous heart - butterfly wings die from Memory Box. I bought it recently from Ally Pally and am delighted that I did!
The additional little turquoise butterflies are from Stampin' Up's Beautiful Wings Embosslits.
The sentiment is from Stampendous, mounted on Spellbinders tags, which I believe are no longer available, which is such a shame as I think they are just terrific. The larger die-cut was shortened to fit around the smaller one.
My second card involves a lot of triple embossing, using Platinum and Black UTEE. The hearts were cut with Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers and impressed with a deely etched flourish stamp. The sentiment is from SU.
As ever there are some more examples on my personal blog!
