Its for the Birds.



These cards are for this weeks sketch at Beate’s blog and Cardvarks' winged challenge. I love Beate's sketches, it really jump starts my creativity and I wanted to try a new challenge, this is the first time I am doing a cardvark challenge. I really only get to create on the weekends and as I have gotten a couple of orders for MORE cards from friends and family


I decided that when I was creating I would try to do a couple of cards at a time so I created two for this sketch These stamps are Kim Hughes collection at CHF and I used my prismacolor pencils to color them in and chalk for the sky. I seem to be into birds this month. Keep those sketches coming Beate.

Flo, I love Beate's sketches too - though I need to do more of them... lol
Doing 2+ cards at the same time is always a great idea... you already have the supplies out so why not right? I always try to mass produce my cards and make use of my supplies.
