For a Little Ravens Fan

I needed to make a birthday card for my friends’ little girl who is turning 1 tomorrow. They are huge Baltimore Ravens fans, so I had to color the little bird from Fun & Fast Notes purple (or rather, Lovely Lilac). The sketch I used was today’s challenge on SCS (SC204), and I also followed the SCS tutorial by Mary Jo Albright for the scallop square. I definitely am going to need to some more practice with this technique!

I stamped the image with black StazOn ink on watercolor paper and colored it in with Classic inks and an Aqua Painter. The buttons were adhered to the ribbon with Mini Glue Dots, and I drew a “faux thread” with my white gel pen.

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and safe holiday travels!
