The Perfect Perch

Hi there 🙂 I was thrilled to be asked to be a guest designer at Cheerful Sketches this month. One of their sponsors is The Paper Shelter, and I was given Mind If I Settle Here to work with. The sketch for this month is an awesome one, with so many possibilities!

I colored the image up with my Copics, and added some sparkly effects for the snow and added snowflakes. A bit of gold sparkle on the star, and some clear Nuvo on the tree ornaments gave a bit more dimension and interest.

For the layout, I stuck to the sketch as closely as possible. For the 3 back panels, I embossed some white paper with a snowflake folder, and matted everything with a pretty blue. The sentiment was die cut from a deep red paper and attached to a block of white. For a finishing touch, some dark red gems were added.

I’d like to thank the team at Cheerful Sketches again for inviting me to play with them!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
