Freshly Made Sketches #416

I am back with more of the Spruced Up line! This set comes with an assortment of pine branches, sentiments and birds facing opposite directions.  No mirroring your images for this set, Close To My Heart did it for you!  Here is a look at the complete set-

All of the images shaded in blue, come with coordinating Thin Cut dies! I stamped my bird with Intense Black ink and added a little bit of color with Prismacolor pencils.  For my pine branches, I first stamped the branch area with Espresso ink and then applied New England Ivy to the needles area.  I added a touch of color with pencils to the images. My bird is popped up with 3-D foam tape for more dimension and Liquid Glass applied as a glossy accent to the eye. I created my card based on the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches-
