Inspirational #219 ~ Red Rubber Inspirational Team

     Give thanks with Inspirational #219, hosted by Lynda, for Red Rubber Inspirationals! I had a blast making this thank you card for an example!

     My design inspiration came from this awesome sketch #122 at Cardabilities!

     I started by stamping the bird with All things of nature onto a white circle. I colored it with Distress Inks and markers, using water to make the clouds in the background, and adding a small bead for the eye. Then I used the (Well Rounded) TCW stencil with some gesso to create the circles.Taking the colors from the May Card Challenge at, I sprayed some mists to it, and then stamped the black splatters with the So Splattered stamp. For the sentiment, I used Savvy Sayings, all from Red Rubber Designs

     I finished it up with some machine stitching, and hand-stitching around the circle. I'm also entering this into challenge #97 (Things with wings) at Fashionable Stamping Challenges, and the Mixed Media Card Challenge also with wings for the theme.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
