Rosie D's challenge 62

We have a new challenge and a new sponsor at Rosie D's this time round and we have a great sketch for you to follow drawn by our own Rosie. But before I launch into more blurb.........you all know I could talk for England, I would like to say a huge welcome to our five new teamies, Mervi, Tracy, Madge and the return of Jackie and Lynne who were with us last year. Quite a formidable team so lots of inspiration coming your way.

Our sponsor In Style Stamps gave the DT this gorgeous birdhouse and funky birds to create our samples. I started with a piece of DP from Polkadoodles new Love Marriage and More CD, resized the pair of birdies and repeated them several times to create a border which I laid over another strip punched with Martha Stewart embossed scallop. I decoupaged the roof of the birdhouse and stamped two birds using Art Impression A2413 and B2414. The circles are cut with Nesties through the Big Shot Express and the images all coloured in with Copics. Punched flowers, a journaling tag and some liquid pearls added to finish.
