LSC259 challenge at SCS to be inspired by something about the USA Presidents.....what the???? Being a Non-American I actually had to do some research - did you know that President Thomas Jefferson had a mockingbird called 'Dick' that lived in the White House Study?! Then the IC219 challenge popped up at SCS where we had to be inspired by Geninne's Etsy Store and what do you know - most of it is BIRDS! Bird No18 looked kinda like a mockingbird to me so I headed off to the creative corner......
I started with a base of grey bazzill and layered with very pale dusty blue bazzill and Baja Breeze. Next I took a piece of grey Urban Garden DSP and punched one end with the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch and layered with another piece of Urban Garden cut with the Label 8 Nestabilities and attached a piece of 1" blue satin ribbon through the middle. The bird (OK, it is meant to be a sparrow - I've used some artistic licence) is from ODBD's He Watches Me and I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with markers (Going Grey, Basic Grey, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Perfect Plum) and a blender pen and cut it out with Large Oval Nestabilities and mounted on more Baja Breeze and popped it up on foam tape. To finish I stamped the sentiment (also from He Watches Me) in Memento Tuxedo Black in the bottom corner, added a few clear rhinestones to the other corners and also added a bow to the ribbon.
