H2H Photo Inspiration with Atlantic Hearts Sketch #8

There is a lovely birdcage with flowers photo inspiration challenge at Heart2Heart Challenges this week and I was inspired to play along.  I chose the birdcage and soft pink and orange coloring to feature in my card.


The card base is Hollyhock and the patterned paper with a birdcage design is from Dream Pop (retired CTMH).  The bird is from CTMH April 2013 Stamp of the Month called My Sunshine.  The greeting is from the Oklahoma Tornado Relief special called a True Thank You which is currently available here.  The bird was stamped in Pacifica pigment ink and clear embossed.  I then used the lighter of the two Hollyhock Alcohol Markers to color the wing, the bird and the YOU.  I applied Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel to the wing and the YOU.  The bird and bird wing were raised up with 3D Foam Tape.  If you look closely you can see a tiny wiggle eye on the bird.  

Here is the Atlantic Hearts Sketch that I followed:

Thanks for stopping by! If you get a chance please play along with these CTMH consultant sponsored challenges along with Color My Heart Color Dare featuring Topiary and Smoothie.  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
