Just a Note

Here's a quick, cheery card for today's SCS sketch challenge.  I used a favorite stamp set--Papertrey Ink's Little Bitty Bird--along with a companion set for this one.

I made a simple scene using an aqua panel with a sponged cloud background and the branch from the Little Bitty Bird set.  The cloudy sky is sponged on to an aqua panel using distress ink for a soft look.  The branch is stamped in brown ink and the leaves are colored with a Copic marker.  To add some texture, I stamped the bird on a piece of die cut yellow felt, then adhered it to the branch.

I used a strip of solid golden yellow cardstock along the top of the card, then layered on a piece of green gingham paper before adding the image panel.  The "just a note" sentiment from the Little Bitty Bird Additions set is stamped on the oval panel in brown ink.  To go with the sentiment, I stamped a single music note in brown ink just above the bird.

Materials Used:
Little Bitty Bird and Little Bitty Bird Additions stamp sets, Aqua Mist, Ripe Avocado, Harvest Gold, and Hawaiian Shores cardstock, Ripe Avocado patterned paper, Little Bitty Bird dies, Harvest Gold felt (Papertrey Ink); Peacock Feathers distress ink (Ranger); marker (Copic); petite oval dies (Spellbinders)
