Seize The Birthday - Sketch


Welcome to Seize The Birthday!  This week, we have a sketch challenge for you:


I've used Scenery: Persuasion Script Creative Screenings from Winnie & Walter for the background, using Distress Inks and then spritzing them before printing the screening.  The feather die is a freebie from a UK magazine, smeared with Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord then spritzed.  The tag came from a top that I bought, which cost me a small ransom. With a tag like this, I'm not surprised:


That middle tag is patterned vellum.  I cut the bottom section off and rounded the corners, added a stamped die-cut circle and used the original cord that was holding the layers of tag together.

Pop over to Seize The Birthday to see the wonderful project from the Design Team and to play along.  If you don't want to use the sketch you can still play along with any birthday project - win, win!

  4. Gorgeous card, Shirley..the water-colouring, the eye-catching feather, the tag...I'm joining with Becca in drooling over this beauty. Now I want to see the 'small ransom' top you bought that came with this amazing tag you re-purposed so wonderfully. I can imagine it's lovely, and on you, transformed to stunning...
