Be Inspired #20

Another fabulous inspiration piece from Beate! I went pretty literal on this one, other than for the image. I sponged stripes on the Red Riding Hood cardstock with Red Riding Hood ink, but I'm not sure how well you can see that in the picture. I used the Winter Birds set from Inkadinkado (found at Stamper's Dream) and a sentiment from the SU set Warm Words. The Summer Sunrise piece was "distressed" a bit with a black ink pad. Finally I used some Stardust Stickles on the bird's wings and some Christmas Red Stickles on the berries.



Be sure to see what Beate, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Jennifer Buck, Silke Ledlow and Susan Roberts have come up with for this challenge! I'm sure they will all be wonderful! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Winter Birds (Inkadinkado), Warm Words (SU); Ink- Red Riding Hood, Always Artichoke (SU), Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko); Paper- Red Riding Hood, Basic Black (SU), Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink), white (Georgia-Pacific); Accessories- Stardust and Christmas Red Stickles, brads (Darice); Finished card measures 4.25" square
