Create with TLC Blog Hop: for the Birds

Welcome to the
With lots and lots of
FREE digital images if you hop
from blog to blog.
If you came here from
you are ready for the next freebie.
Do grab my bird and see what
I have made for you:
a card and a tag:

(click on this picture and save it
to your computer)

I made the card with this lovely bird picture
for a sketch challenge.
I love doing sketches and I found this blog
where there are many sketches.
A new one every week.
Here is my sketch for Mojo Monday 275

What i like about doing sketches
is that you are challenged to do something
you otherwise would not think of.

The focal image is colored with watercolor crayons.
I love the soft tones of the crayons.
The leaves are cut with a die and brushed some
green ink around the borders.
Little gemstone flowers are added for some bling.

The card is build up of many layers
you see best from the side.

The sentiment is also by Create with TLC.
Here a tag with the bird,
for some more inspiration.
Background done with distress stain
direct to paper technique:
broken china, peacock feathers, brushed pewter.
 Also musical washi tape is added
to the tag.
The picture of the bird is colored with
distress markers and waterpen.
The wing stamp on the background is tattered wings
by Stampers Anonymous. Some glitterglue on top
of the black stamp and also on the flowers and the bird.
Now you want to move on
and grab more images,
 but first I want to thank
these images and giving them to the
design team to share with you.
Here is the complete list of
where to find all the free images:

Hetty -> you are HERE!

Have a creative day!
