I started by sponging Memento Desert Sand ink on an Ivory background.
Then sponged MEmento Rich Cocoa.
Next I sponged Memento Angel Pink at the top.
Then lightly with Memento Rose Bud.
I stamped the tree with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Then I used Copic markers, YG93 and YG91 to add some shading to the ground.
I stamped the small leaf trio with Memento Desert Sand around the base of the tree.
Then stamped it again several times with Memento Angel Pink.
On a small piece of Pure Luxury White card stock, I stamped the birdhouse and used Copics to color, starting with E59.
Then added E57.
Then filled in with E51.
I used N5 on the roof.
I cut out the birdhouse and adhered it with Pop Dots, then stamped the rake to be leaning on the tree.
I inked up the bird with Memento Summer Sky, then just touched the top edge of the bird to the Danube Blue ink pad before stamping, to give him a little shading.
I used on of the images from Elegant Elements and stamped around the top and sides with Memento Angel Pink.
Someone asked me how I wrap my bakers twine around my layers. Sorry, I can't remember if it was a comment or an email, but here is how I do it. I start at #1 and hold the twine with my thumb, leaving one end just dangling. With my thumb still holding it in place, a pull the other end toward #2 and wrap it around the back toward #3. I wrap it around and then angle it toward #4. I wrap it around at #4 and then keep it straight going toward #5. Wrap it around at #5 and then meet up at #1 and tie it off. When I tie it off it isn't always crossing at just the point I want, so then I just adjust the twine here and there until I'm happy with it. I hope that makes sense.
I layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown and used an Innocent Pink card base.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are having a happy day!
