Treehouse Challenge and a Gorgeous RAK!

This week's Brainwave challenge at Treehouse stamps was to use Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, and Bravo Burgandy. I used the little birdie from the Home Grown set. I colored the image in with my Copics and used my airbrush around him. I cut the rectangles out with my Nestibilities. I sewed and happened to have 3 ribbons that matched perfectly! So I had to use all 3! I then added a button and stick pin. The little metal sign was found while cleaning my scrap room. IT is a gazillion years old! I thought it worked well with this card! If you would like to see what the other girls did check out their blogs!


As many of you know, I was Featured Stamper a few weeks ago at SCS. Cindy, AKA: Mothermark, sent me this gorgeous RAK to honor my FS! She told me she made a dress template herself and even wrote the poem for me! Isn't it just gorgeous?! It is going in a small shadow box frame and hanging in my scrap room! I am so touched by her kindness! I think scrappers and stampers are the nicest people on Earth!

Well, I am off to my Copic class today! Hopefully, I will become a bit better at the blending and shading.

**Just a quick question, do people want to see Copic colors when I post a card? I notice lots of bloggers doing it. If it helps, I certainly could do that!

Hi Michele!

First of all, let me say how wonderful your little birdie card is. The gingham ribbon and the little metal embellishment are the perfect choice of embellishments to go with this sweet image!
Love it!

Thank you so much for posting my card on your blog and providing a link to mine. It was very much my pleasure to make this little card for you. I was so inspired by your gallery and blog! I am honored that you will make it a part of the decor in your scrap room!

Hugs....thanks for the kind words!

Another fab card Michele! What a blessing to have received such a thoughtful RAK.

I hope you learn lots with the Copic class. I can go either way with picturing what Copic you use.
