Merry Monday 62 - Tweetie Bird

Hello there,
well I didn't quite have the time last week to play along with the Merry Monday challenge  :( but at least part of the reason was because I was putting together my guest designer card for this week's challenge :). So...drum roll...(lol)...this weeks Merry Monday challenge is...

Cool sketch huh! I ended up turning it upside down and I think it totally works this way too!

I coloured that sweet tweetie bird with copics, sponged some sky around it and finished it off with some sparkly stickles on its hat. I love the fresh feel of pale blue, red, white and dark brown for Christmas and it just seemed to suit this bird to a T. A bit of woodgrain embossing gives a rustic feel and I can't go past a some baker's twine!

Please do check out the fabulous sketch inspiration from the Merry Monday DT and have fun with the sketch!
