It’s time again for our Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge! This week, Lori chose some beautiful plates from Acacia.

 

(I’m also combining this w/ SCS Sketch Challenge.)

I love birds and I knew I had just the right chickadees image from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I stamped them with the chocolate ink and colored them with Prismacolor pencils. I used the Out of the Box Nestie technique (tutorial HERE) to cut them out, but I used a nesting rectangle set from Quickutz. Masking the birds, I sponged on a little of the Neptune ink.

After matting on a chocolate brown layer, I tried something a little different on the white layer. Recently, I tried embossing card stock using a piece of plastic canvas. I liked it so I tried it with a piece of finer mesh vinyl (sold for cross stitch bookmarks). First I lightly misted a piece of white card stock, placed it on the Spellbinders tan embossing mat, placed the vinyl mesh on top and ran it through my Sizzix. I love how it turned out! It looks and feels just like artist canvas. I left the small piece white but on another, I brayered over it with the Neptune ink, stamped my feathers background (Anita’s/Sugarloaf) w/ the chocolate ink and colored them in w/ markers.

The green bg was done w/ the forest branches Cuttlebug folder. I added some punched out circles as faux brads.

Thanks so much for looking and please visit the rest of the Divine Diva Team. We would really love for y’all to play along in our challenge. Lori is offering some terrific blog candy for this challenge.
