OLW25 - Birds, trees ....

.... flowers, bees and a sentiment.  Jennifer of Styles Ink said that we must include at least two of these items plus a sentiment.  And for a change the CAS style came really easily!!  Maybe it's practise that's doing it.



Stamps:  Waltzingmouse Stamps - Asian Garden, Teeny Trees
Inks:  Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress - Peeled Paint, Bundled Sage, Crushed Olive
Pens:  Pigma Micron - Black 0.1
Ribbon:  From stash

I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this card - and it would have been for the Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge last week too, but I missed the deadline!!  Too busy with my OU assignment.  I decided on a with sympathy type card, but opted for a slightly different take.  I used three colours of green for the leaves.  I'm really pleased with how this turned out.

That's all for today.  I've got to get sorted now - it's half-term next week and I'm going to be busy with the family.  I'm going to schedule a series of posts so that the blog keeps going and, if I get a spare few minutes, I'll try to do a few live posts too.

Take care all - thanks for visiting and leaving your comments, I really do appreciate you taking the time.  Bye for now.

This is gorgeous - I love seeing your Waltzingmouse projects - had never heard of them until we met on MCC. This just took my breath away with its elegant sophistication.

This is a show-stopper! I love the effect of your using different greens for the leaves. The open cage door and the bird on the right of the page creates a lot of movement in the card - I love it!
