If You Need Me

Happy Sunday! Today's the third day of Anni-VERVE-sary sketches over on the Verve forum. I've had this adorable little Inkadinkado bird stamp for a few weeks now and it still hadn't seen ink. So I decided to pull it out and give it some lovin'. I stamped the Duet image first in Rich Cocoa Memento ink and then cut out and embossed with a Nestabilities square die. I then colored with Copic markers. When I was done, I thought the image needed just a bit more movement and whimsy so I added some little dots in various places around the image. This square is matted on a Ruby Red square stamped with Crimson Red Versafine ink with the Tiled Scallop Backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms. I used the same background for the "awning" of the card, using a corner rounder for the scallop edge. I stamped the double lined squares from Asian Flair and punched out with a 1" square punch, then matted on more of the ruby red scalloped tile scraps. Next I added some square deco brads Laurie sent me in the center of the squares, colored the center squares with Orange Peel stickles, and then colored the outer squares with Copic markers for a multicolored look. The patterned paper is from Daisy D's and I stamped the I'm here if you need me sentiment from Here For You in the corner. To finish, I colored some Kaiser Craft pearls with a Copic marker to match the colors in the card, then adhered them in the corner, added a knotted bow of May Arts ribbon and a little extra stickles on the bird and flower image.
