Project 322: Boy birthday sketch challenge

I am getting a bit ahead of the game and wanted to make some cards for events in the next month because these weeks are incredibly busy. My father-in-law's birthday is coming up so when I saw CAS-ual Fridays were doing a boy birthday challenge I knew I would enter.

The sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch was perfect for what I had in mind.

I started with a stenciled background using Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Carved Pumpkin. The bird is a Tim Holtz stamp that I won recently and I colored him with ProMarkers and then fussy cut him out. The balloons are from a Stampin' Up punch Claire recently gave me. The sentiment is from a set from Creative Stamping magazine, it is a new favourite.

The bird is so weird and wonderful, I know he'll be a firm favourite in no time.


  1. Aww he is really sweet Jessie… such a fab image and the balloons are perfect with him. Love the gorgeous textured background… such pretty colours! :-)
    Hope you are keeping well.. have a good week!
    Big hugs, Sue B xx
