Sing From The Soul

Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge 585
Hi, everyone!  This week's Sketch Challenge 585 over at Splitcoast was pretty challenging for took me a long while to figure out my plan of action.  I finally settled on the 'Songbirds' set by Artistic Outpost, plus the 'Chalkboard Fan Background' by sister company, Our Daily Bread designs. The fancy frame was stamped in gray, fussy cut around the outside, then stamped the songbirds and sentiment in gray as well, then sponged the edges and birdies with cantaloupe.  I went way out of my comfort zone and distressed the edges of the background panels...eek!, then sponged them in gray before adhering them to a white mat which was then paper pierced.  I didn't have any ribbon that would work with these colors, so I created a banner for an additional sentiment instead.

Oh, Angie, this card is gorgeous, and I love these songbirds! Your fussy cutting this stamp is perfect with the sponging and the light pink over the birds. And eek! Hehe! Made me laugh when you said you went out of your comfort zone - me too! But it's perfect, and I love your take on the sketch! Stunning card and great stamp set! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
