Sketch ISCC6 


I used stamps from several different sheets for this card.  The flourish is from Artsy Victorian, Bird/Art 4 Frames II, Sentiment is from Textures & Sentiments and Music from Summer Elements.  This color combination just kind of happened, but I really like the Soft Sky/Plum/Artichoke combination.  The layers were spritzed with a combination of Perfect Pearls/Dusty concord Reinker/Water. The bird is on a polished stone layer using Butterscotch, Meadow, Eggplant & gold.  The edges of the soft sky layer were sponged with Tim Holtz Milled Lavender ink.




  1. Shelly this is just so lovely. I love the way you added the flourish for the birds tail. Wonderful color combination also. Very artistic indeed.

  2. I love the soft colors! Especially the sponging!
    It looks very cloud-like!

    Elegant card!

  3. Oh, how creative with the bird and the flourish! It's beautiful!

  4. Shelly this is beautiful. I LOVE the cutout flourished tail for the bird!

  5. Beautiful!! I love what you did with the flourish!!
