Artful INKables Blog Hop and Release Day!

Today is the release of two new sets from Artful INKables called A Bird's Song and Down on the Farm, and we are hosting a blog hop to preview these new sets. You should have arrived from Jen's blog. If not, please hop over to the Artful INKables blog and start there. You don't want to miss all the great projects the AI DT has for you to see!

I'm previewing A Bird's Song today. When I saw this, I was extremely excited! It's such a pretty set of two birds, some sentiments, and accent pieces.Isn't this bird just gorgeous? See, I told you it was a great set! I colored the image with copics, then sponged in some So Saffron ink in the background. The berries on the branch is a separate stamp that fits on there perfectly. All you need is your stamp-a-ma-jig to place them on there just right! I cut around them before I cut out the image with this nestie. Our very own Joy has a tutorial on how to do this technique on the AI blog
here. I put star dust stickles on the berries and the bird and added the flower rhinestones in yellow and blue in the corners. The sentiment is also from the set. I used Jen del Muro's sketch from last Saturday. Artful INKables has a great sketch challenge for the Think INK Tuesday Challenge for you this week, however it just didn't work for this image I chose to use. I'll have one done with that sketch later...it runs for two weeks so I have lots of time to make something with the new sets!

Now you have to hop over to Sherry's blog and see her fabulous creation! Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy your hop!
