Digital images are not something I use often and I don't know why! The orientation and size are flexible and they take up no shelf space in my tiny room. This image was designed by The Doodle Pantry. I was inspired to make this card by three challenges: Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Sketch #230, Can You Case It? Theme Challenge #93, and The Paper Players Theme Challenge #269.
The card base was stamped to achieve the wood grain look. The image was printed on cardstock, colored with Spectrum Noir Markers and the sentiment stamped. I purposely colored the birds to be bluebirds rather than crows. The image was die cut in a stitched oblong shape rather than an oval in order to balance the image, and the edges were sponged with ink. The oblong was backed with craft foam for dimension. The SSW2 sketch has three horizontal strips so I interpreted the fence in the image to represent those strips. The inside of the card was lined with cardstock and decorated with stamped pumpkins.
Please take a few minutes to visit the Doodle Pantry, SSW2#230, CYCI#93, and PP269 for creative ideas and join the challenges!
