MossBirdHOuseajhcopy

This week over at Paper Cupcake we have a sketch for you.

Melanie Newby brings use this weeks challenge. She would like you to use "ANY acquired PAPER CUPCAKE'S" image and use the below sketch. You can stretch it, rotate it, reverse it etc as long as the original sketch can still be seen.

I used Paper Cupcake’s digital image Mossed Topped Birdhouse. Used prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits. Where the moss is on the birdhouse, I used Flower Soft. Layered image on a scallop rectangle Spellbinder. For my background, I cuttlebug’d a ColorCore Cardstock and sanded it to show the color underneath. Used Martha Stewart punch for my strips and added brads to them. (I realized after it was all put together that my strips were not in the same places as the sketch. oops!)MossBirdHOuseajhcopy

Come play along with us at Paper Cupcake for a chance to win a prize. Nina has a freebie you can use for the sketch if you don’t own any Paper Cupcake images yet.


          Thanks for stopping by!
