The Winter bird sings!



Indeed having a wonderful sketch challenge is something to sing about in the winter!
The ISMAKI Challenge will be posted every Monday and this is the very first one. So if you are interested just click on the link.

The sketch called for a rectangle for the focal image but I just couldn't get the bird to feel balance in it. I hope to try another image later in the week. There is also a 2nd lovely optional sketch posted with the challenge. For my card I used stamps by Stamper's Anonymous and Blockhead Arts. I used homemade pearl mist, pearl acrylic dabber, and distress inks. Thanks for looking!...Jan
