Tuesday Morning Sketches #243

I had a wonderful evening crafting with my sister, we had FaceTime going and it was like we were crafting in the same room.

This card is for the current Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge,  I ended up flipping the sketch  and skewing it a little but I am happy with the end result. I heat embossed the sentiment and the bird and then cut out the birds DP body. I used glitter markers for his plume and gave him googly eyes. I used my Silhouette for the oval and outline and popped it all up with foam tape.

Supplies: Cream and brown card stock, Designer Paper – My Mind’s Eye, The Alley Way Stamps-Birds of a Feather, Silhouette cuts, pearls, twine, googly eyes.
