Vintage Blues


I made this card for a couple of challenges today, the first one is the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge #145.  The sponsor this week is A Day for Daisies, which leads me to the second challenge at A Day for Daisies Challenge #39- Shades of Blue.  I used the freebie bird image that is given for the challenge along with the beautiful sketch from SSW.  I colored the image with my Prismacolors and paired it up with some Paper Street Designs paper.  I then distressed the edges and then inked it with some Walnut Stain, which turned the blue paper green, lol.  You can join in on both challenges, there still is plenty of time so hop on over and take a look at the beautiful DT work and check out the beautiful freebie to play with.  I hope you all have a fabulous Friday :)
