Bird at sunrisePosted: April 21, 2013
When I saw this week’s sketch from CAS(E) this sketch I knew it was perfect for a little scene. I created it using three stamps from one set, Tweet Tweet. It just so happens that the current Casual Fridays challenge is to create a birthday card so I’ll enter there too.
I positioned post-it notes to mask around a rectangle and punched a little circle mask for the sun. I then cut a wavy mask and positioned it to create the horizon, sponged yellow first, positioned the circle mask and sponged more yellow then orange. Next I lowered the horizon mask and sponged in green, moving the mask twice to create three hills. Before removing the perimeter masks I stamped the little berry branch stamp first in orange then slightly offset in black. Finally I removed all the masks and added the bird stamp and the sentiment.
Around here our grass is beginning to look green and there are even some flowers appearing but we did have snow and ice pellets yesterday!
