Masculine Birthday with a Freshly Made Sketch

Welcome to my Paper Room!

As with my last post, this card was created earlier this weekend in a much larger “paper room” shared by several other ladies at a fundraising crop event.  It is always fun to play with friends, and have them there to bounce ideas off of.  

I recently got the WETLANDS stamp set and have been chomping at the bit to play with it.   This ended up being a perfect layout challenge by Freshly Made Sketches #145- A Sketch By Narelle.  Here is a look at it.


I love these challenges, and the versatility they offer, while still helping me to “think outside the box”.



I used two colors on the duck image by carefully inking the bird and grass separate.  Had I been at home I would have used my Stampin’ Write Markers.  The background grasses were a different stamp image from the same set which I stamped first, before placing the duck where I wanted it.  The Woodgrain Embossing Folder (#127821) was the perfect backdrop for this layout, and the subtle dotted print from the Flowerpot DSP (#133698) was the perfect addition of color.  I can always count on Candy Dots to add a bit of dimension to my projects!  Check out all of the items that I used on this cared below my signature, and thanks for visiting!

Creatively Yours, Bobbi
