hello ~ Embellish & Mercy's Sketch #68
I hadn't inked up this fun little set called Forest Friends since the fall, so I dusted him off and encorporated a little stamp with marker technique. I inked up the images with Sage Shadow, Sahara Sand & Pretty In Pink, then hand cut the bunny and butterfly to attach for a dimensional look. The butterfly and sentiment come from a different little set called Hello Again.
I paired up a couple of challenges that really get me thinking outside of the box...the Embellish Color Challenge with Stitching using Light Aqua, Kraft & Light Pink and Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #68.
The vertical panels behind the main nestie-cut image were stitched with the sewing machine. Before it was all said and done, it needed a little embellishing, so I added pink brads, some narrow Sage Shadow grosgrain with a Pink Pirouette button laced with Linen Thread.
