ODBDSLC #186 - Sketch

Happy Tuesday everyone!! The Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge is a sketch, join us here for the details.

For this gorgeous sketch I selected soft peach and natural cardstock with a stip of corregated cardstock to accent this lovely bird, which I heat embossed and watercolored with reinkers. I inked up the embossing folder with peach ink for more dimensiona and added accents of seam binding ribbon and peach pearls.
