Is it Big Bird ...

Phew, it has been a long time since I've blogged.  There has been a lot going on in our lives this summer and I had to step away for a while.  My husbands mother passed away in a house fire and it definitely took a toll on all of us in different ways.

On to better things ... a card!  I've actually stamped some over the last few months and may upload some of those later.  For today, I played along with Tuesday Morning Sketches ... one of my favs!

Stamps:  Vertical Greetings 2 (GKD)
Paper:  White (SU); Black, Yellow (Michaels)
Ink:  Onyx Black (Versafine); Mustard Seed, Weathered Wood, Broken China, Tea Dye (T. Holtz)
Accessories:  clear embossing powder, paint brush (Hobby Lobby); Ironwork accents (Spellbinders); sponge (T. Holtz); glitter pen (Sakura); gems (SU); polka dot embossing folder (CuttleBug)

Here is the inspiration photo ...

This picture does not do the glitter any justice.  Kinda looks drabby here but in real life, it looks so much better. I haven't picked up the camera in so long that I don't know how to take a decent picture. Lol  The gems were colored with a yellow Copic marker.  The bird panel was watercolored with the distress inks.

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day,
