Over at Polkadoodles we needed to create a project using the sketch below and the colors; red, white and blue. For my take on the sketch this week I used a mess of new and old goodies.
The new goodies used were the pattern striped background paper and the black and white digital birdie. These digital elements are available on the All Around & Everywhere in the 'Bright & Beautiful' collection CD from Polkadoodles.
For the old elements I cut out a tree shape and then applied different shades of brown cardstock to create the tree bark. I then, embossed the tree with the swirl embossing folder. Did you notice the clouds behind the blue bird? The clouds were created with torn strips of paper and blue ink.
