Touch of Spring

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS - Cuttlebug:Negative Effect, Sunday's FEATURED STAMPER-Betcha Becky, Tuesday's COLOR -Basic Pomegrante, and BEATE'S WEEKEND SKETCH CHALLENGES all rolled up into this one card. I wanted to do Beate's Sketch and I also wanted to CASE another of Becky's cards and chose her CASED ALWAYS. I changed the sketch and colors and used the cb instead of PP. The birds & swirls folder was inked with purely pomegrante on the negative side of the folder then I placed my paper in, closed the folder and ran it through the CB machine and the results are the middle panel (which I discovered as I was putting this together that I should have placed horizontally rather than vertically, ooppps. So I had to flip the sketch a bit, Beate' wont mind I hope. I stamped the fern in versa mark on Basic Gray. I used a ribbon slider I received in some happy mail recently, yeh I am using new stuff. I colored the bird using my stamp pads and blender pen because on the other side of that cs I colored the hummingbird from another set using Prismacolor pencil and it turned out more of a purplish color-didn't like it so I turned it over and tried again. The sentiment was stamped in black and yes the t is on the tree branch. Oh and I got downstairs took the pic and realized as I was loading on SCS that I left off the Black Matt on the gray layer. Oh Well. Tomorrow is another day. Gotta head to work. Have a great day and stamp one for me.
