Perched In A Tree Sending Thanks

It is time for another Festive Friday Challenge!  World Space Day  is the festivity we are featuring on the Festive Friday Challenge. What is the Festive Friday Challenge?  The Festive Friday Challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that has an Inspo List.  What is an Inspo List?  Every challenge has an Inspo list  aka as an inspiration list, that has 10 items on it and those 10 items were inspired by a particular holiday, celebration or festivity.  You need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project.  You do not have to incorporate the festivity into your challenge but if you want to, you can.  Here is a link to more information about how to participate in the challenge.


For my project I am using from the Inspo List, Night Sky, Ink Blending, and Stars.  


The Soft Suede card base was cut using the amazing Aspen Tree dies.  This chubby bird from the Perched In a Tree set is so cute.  I colored her using Balmy Blue, Soft Suede, and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends.  I am not sure if it is visible but she is covered in Wink of Stella.  For the coloring behind the trees I used the Blending Brushes and Balmy Blue, Starry Sky and Night of Navy ink.  The stars are from the Give it a Whirl dies cut from Very Vanilla Glimmer paper.  The banner and sentiment are from the Fond of Autumn bundle.  On either side of the sentiment are Night of Navy Solid Faceted Gems.


Inside I added a Soft Suede strip and a couple leaves cut using the Aspen Trees dies.


On the night sky I also flicked some Wink of Stella to add a little more shine to the ink blended background.  This picture shows a little more of the shimmer from the Wink of Stella.

Beautiful, Sharon! This little bird is colored so perfectly. I love how you placed the stars among the tree branches. The Aspen dies are among my favorites. Have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful Sharon - that night sky is fabulous and is a beautiful contrast to the softer colours of that sweet chubby bird.
