Crafts – Inky Paws Challenge #40 – Sketch


ipc_40_1-feb-6Last weekend I decided to put away my books and do some crafting instead. With Valentine’s Day coming up I was in the perfect mood for something creative and when I saw the Inky Paws Challenge on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog, I thought why not try something like that for a change.

I’m actually quite new to the stamping world, so it’s nice to have some guidance, especially in form of a sketch that tells you where to place what. As I don’t own any physical Newton’s Nook Design stamps, because they are hard to come by over here, I was glad that they offer free digital stamps on their website.
You're TweetI chose the birds and decided to place them in front of a tree. Because I wanted two birds, I mirrored the digital stamp on my computer. To color the birds and the balloon, I used my Faber Castell watercolor pencils. I made a background stamp for the tree out of Fifty-Fifty silicone putty that I still had at home from a Halloween project. I also added a few leaves that I punched with a big heart punch and some yarn for the birds to stand on.

I think the card turned out quite well. There are one or two things I’d do differently the next time, but I still have problems parting with this card 😉
