Bird Sketch

I printed up some birds from my pcCrafter stash of images a while ago and they were sitting on my work table.  When I saw the sketch at Die Cuttin' Divas I knew one would be perfect to use on it.

I used grey as the background on top of a white card base.  Yellow became the under layer of the image to compliment the color of the bird.  The branches were cut from Straight from the Nest, the border cut on page 15.  I trimmed off some of the leaves so the remaining three could take the place of the circles in the sketch.  I cut the branches in white and then used Black Soot Distress Ink to give them a birch bark look.  I love watching birds and any chance to use a picture of one is a plus for me.


  1. That yellow background paper matches your bird perfectly! Gorgeous card!!! Thanks for joining Die Cuttin Divas!!

  2. Very nice! Using the grey paper really makes your bird stand out. Thanks for joining the challenge this week at DCD!--Pat N.
