Uru and Bird

I made this card for Challenge #54 over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog. It's a sketch challenge this time. Here is the sketch:

This adorable stamp is called Uru and Bird created by Norma Fickel for Whiff of Joy stamps. I fell in love with her gnomes the minute I saw them! They are so cute!

After I colored the image, I covered it with Glossy Accents. All the paper pieces are distressed with Tea Dye. I had lots of fun coloring my new stamps from Whiff of Joy on Sunday!! Hope I'll have the chance to make them into cards and to share with you later!

Hope you have a beautiful Monday evening!

Thanks for stopping by!
