Bird Singing Thank You

Hello, friends.  Today I have made a CAS card. 

I started with a kraft card base, onto which I stamped sheet music in watermark ink, bird cage and sentiment in black, and music note in green.  I coloured the leaves of the sentiment with a coloured pencil.  Lastly I affixed a torn strip of sheet music and a bird image with foam tape.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Sheet music (Judi-Kins), bird cage, music note (Micheals), sentiment (Studio G)
  • Ink:  Versamark Watermark, Versafine Onyx Black, Ancient Page Pine
  • Bird graphicGraphics Fairy (thank you, Karen)
  • Cardstock:  Kraft (Stampin' Up!), white (Recollections)
  • Coloured pencil:  Prismacolor
  • Sketch:  Annabelle Stamps - see ---->
