winnie and walter and ellen - mood board

As I mentioned, it's been kinda cray cray around here but I just had to play along with two of my favorite companies who are sharing the love - Winnie and Walter and Essentials by Ellen.


You can check out all the fabulous inspiration at Winnie and Walter or The Classroom blogs.

My next card is for the  the Day 5 Challenge which is to use this mood board.


See the birdie on the branch in the bottom row? And have you seen Vanessa M.'s DT card?
I made a birdie card too. I was following CAS(E) this Sketch #179 but got a bit detoured with my choice of sentiment!


I'm sharing at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where it's Anything Goes this week and at Artistic Stamper where it's All Things Bright and Beautiful in July. And over at the July CAS Mix Up it's about stamping + markers + your choice of mixed media. I've got Copic coloring, distress inking and die-cutting.


My tweetie from WW So Tweet is perched upon an Essentials by Ellen Laurel Wreath instead of a branch. I inked it with Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries inks. Stamped and Copic colored a few wafting hearts from the set. Added a sentiment, also from the set, which I partially colored with a light gray Copic marker.

My tweetie (couldn't get Vanessa's orange cutie off my mind) I Copic colored, fussy cut and popped up on foam tape. A strip of skinny washi finished off the bottom of my card.


Really. Isn't this little birdie just the sweetest. And so perfect for that sentiment... *sigh*
