Taking a deep breath and calming my nerves am back just in time for my DT piece for Sassy Lil Sketches August 25th reveal .
What a great sketch and so much fun to work with this is my interpretation….
Used my Silhouette to cut out the branch and the bird image, then embossed it and both birds with Tim Holtz embossing folders and used a little distress ink to give it a little colour and depth. Made a little nest for my birdie with leaves and twigs and stamped on some seam binding for the sentiment. Added a few little seed pearls to give the impression of eggs in the nest and used glossy accents to weld it all together.
Do pop over to Sassy Lil Sketches to see what the other talented DT members have come up with to inspire us who knows you could be one of our lucky winners this month.
