CropStop Challenge #67-Birds

Good Morning everyone! If you are looking for my La-La Land Crafts New Release post, click HERE!

It's Thursday and time for another CropStop Challenge!

The theme this week is...


Before I get to my "Birds" project, I wanted to remind you of CropStop's second challenge going on right now based on the sketch below. You still have until April 30th to enter the Spellbinder/Becky Fleck Challenge for a chance to win Becky's Potpourri Dies from Spellbinder. You can view all the rules HERE!

Here's an 8x8 scrapbook page I started for my son's Tae Kwon Do Album. He's so excited I'm making him his own album! :) You can view details on this scrapbook page HERE!

Now, onto the current CropStop Challenge.....BIRDS!

I used this adorable (and NEW), Kimono Marci from La-La Land Crafts. I used X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copics and chalk for her cheeks. Her dress is paper-pieced with Washi Paper and I added mini pearls for earrings. :)

Copics & Chalk:
Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, chalk
Lips: R22
Hair/Shoes: C7, C5, Black 100
Pink: R81, R83, R85
Umbrella: E31, E34, E35, R83, R85, B000, B02, B05, V15, V17

The background papers have cranes printed on them and I also made an origami crane to go in the bottom left corner for the bird theme. :) :)

For the center cardstock strip, I embossed it with one of the folders in the Plum Blossom Set, then I rubbed Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, Antique Linen & Walnut stain over the top.

Supplies Used:
X-Press It Blending Card
Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Antique Linen Distress InkSpellbinders Labels Twenty-Three
Cuttlebug Plum Blossom Embossing Set
Recollections Pearls
Washi Paper
CTMH Ribbon

Here's a side view so you can see the dimension. I raised Kimono Marci on pop-dots and also put pop-dots behind the SB Labels 23 cut-out.

I hope you join us for both our current challenges. Can't wait to see what you make!

Have a great week!
Rosie :)

Sweet, sweet, sweet. This Marci is my favourite image of the new release. Such a beautiful card! The papers you used are just perfect. Stunning!
Also, great take on that sketch! It's such a great idea to make Isaiah his own mini album. No wonder he's secited. He's very lucky to have a mummy like you. :)
Hugs! xx
