Retro Sketch #179–and put a bird on it!

retrosketch-179-birdonit

  • Stamps –
    • Ranger/Dina Wakley Media “Scribbly Birds”
    • Printworks “Thank You”
  • Patterned papers – KaiserCraft “Outdoor Trail” 6-1/2″ paper pad
  • Ranger Distress inks – Squeezed Lemonade, Bundled Sage and Dried Marigold
  • Wood button – Prima Marketing
  • Enamel dots – Teresa Collins – Orange
  • Twine – Little B – Naturals
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Kraft paper

I created this card with one of the cute bird images by Dina Wakley. First I applied Ranger Distress inks to the paper, blending the three colors in a somewhat random manner. Then I stamped the image onto the inked cardstock and cut it out. This background paper is spot varnished, so it has a real sheen to it (I think you can see it in the photo). I used the current challenge sketch at Retro Sketches (#179) and also will enter this in the Shopping Our Stash #217: Put a Bird on it! Using inspiration from the sketch to put this card together was pretty fun. Thanks for visiting today.
