CAS26/RIC27 - Take A Deep Breath

Happy Saturday to you! Wow - this card was hard for me to photograph.  Not sure if it's all the branches that was throwing my camera off or what, but not the best reflection of what it looks like in real life!
I used the Impression Obsession stamp to participate in the Runway Inspired Challenge#27 and CASology Challenge#26

First I inked up the stamp with Weathered Wood Distress Ink and then lightly tapped it with Black Soot.  Then I wiped off the birds and colored them with two different colors of Distress Markers.  I added a MFT sentiment because wouldn't you like to take a deep breath out in nature where these birds are?

There's also glitter on those branches but I just couldn't capture it on my picture.  That makes it fit the 'winter' theme.
Here's the Runway Inspired Challenge picture:


OK - have a great day!

Thanks for your visit!

Amazing! I love the branches and the bird resting on them! With the glitter, it looks like branches found with frost on them early in a winter morning :D
