The Happiest Business



I'm loving this sketch, Kazan's Sketch #48, at 2 Sketches 4 You...so many possibilities!



I narrowed it down that I wanted to use the Friends 24-7 stamp set along with the Flock Together Desingner Series Paper. I stamped the bird/branch image with marker by coloring directly on the stamp with a variety of colors. I then colored in the white parts with a few more markers and finally sponged the edges with So Saffron ink. The panels under the image were punched with the Eyelet Border Punch and stitched with the sewing machine.

Now, we're off to my in-law's for a St. Patrick's Day meal...corned beef & cabbage, soda bread, and pecan pie:) Have a goodie!





Stamps: Friends 24-7
Paper: So Saffron, Whisper White CS, Flock Together DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise, Creamy Caramel, Garden Green Stampin' Write Markers
Other: Ribbon Originals, Eyelet Border Punch, Button Latte, Linen Thread, Stampin' Sponges
