Natures Sketchbook

It's time for the new August 2013 Club Kit from A Day For Daisies! Natures Sketchbook is full of beautiful new sketchy images.  I love these feathers…but wait until you see what I have next week!
I am using the new Sketchpad Feathers.  This is one of six feathers, each one more beautiful than the next.  Endless color and combination possibilities!
I began by printing the image three times on Flourishes Classic White card stock.  One image I printed on a 4x51/4 panel off to the left side.  I printed the other two and after coloring them with Copic markers, cut them out to layer onto the main panel.

I pulled out my SU reinkers and watered them down and used my paint brush to splatter the ink on the main panel before I added the feathers.  The turquoise feather is popped up for dimension.  The sentiment is from the Butterfly Dreams set by PTI.
To celebrate the new release, we're having a blog hop!  You should have arrived from Arielle’s blog, but if not, the list is below.  Leave a comment on each of the designer blogs, and you could win the entire release!!  What a fantastic prize!!  You can see all the new club kit images at the ADFD shop and on the ADFD blog!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
