Artful INKables October Blog HOP!


Hello! Welcome to Artful INKables September blog hop.  You should be arriving here from Holly's  blog.  If not then you will want to start at the beginning on Kristin's blog.  There are some fabulous new releases this month.
I chose to use the new set A Bird's Song.  This set is so versatile, because you can create a seasonal scene, by adding leaves, flowers, or winter berries to the branch.  I chose to make this an autumn card.  I have so many beautiful bluebirds that fly around my yard, and they are busily preparing for winter right now.  Their colors are not quite as bright as they are in the summer, so I chose to use more muted tones for my bird.  I colored him with prisma pencils.  I added some ribbon and buttons from my stash and some hemp twine was frayed and added to the middle and the buttons.
Remember to leave a comment on each blog as you go to be eligible for the new release prize bundle!
Your next stop on the hop is the fabulous, talented Joy!

Have fun!

Emily
