  • Coloring terrifies me but even knowing that, I keep buying stamps that need to be colored!! And these darling Doodled Birds from JustRite Stamps begged me to add color so I pulled out my Shin-Han markers and played a bit. It’s not professional by any means but it makes me happy 🙂
  • I added a bit of black card stock with the sentiment embossed in white for an added pop
  • Random pretty sequins adhered with glue dots reinforce the whimsical feel

    Such fun long-legged birds and so perfect for the big open space on this sketch! I love the black sentiment to ground them. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
