Timeless Tuesday ~ Pick a Sketch!

Howdy stamp fans!  It's Tuesday... time for another fabulous Timeless Tuesday Challenge with Flourishes today.

This week I get to be your hostess!  Hooray!  So I decided to go with a sketch... well, actually TWO sketches.  Your challenge this week is to pick a sketch and create a card or project using the design...

So here is the card I created using the sketch on the right side...

Partridge in a Tree

I began my card today by cutting out the large topiary tree shape using the Holiday Topiary Silhouette Cut File from Classic White Cardstock.  Then I stamped my tree image from the "Holiday Topiaries" stamp set  using Memento's "Black Tuxedo" ink and coloured it using the following Copic Collections:
Next I cut out the Labels Twenty-Eight shape from Spellbinders, leaving my white cardstock in the die and stamped my background using the "Love & Joy" sentiment from the same "Holiday Topiaries" stamp set using Memento's "Espresso Truffle" ink.  Then I airbrushed it with a variety of Copic's from the image.

I created my card base and matted all of my patterned papers and added a little soft yellow button and twine.

Before you go too far, be sure to visit the rest of the DT's blogs, as well as our November Guest Designer and leave them a little blog love. In return, they will amaze you with their beautiful work...
Thanks for stopping by!
