Sketchy Thursdays 5.20

I did this LO using this week’s sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. The yellow circles were done by laying down my CM circle cutters, then applying Lemon Custard paint that I brushed onto some bubble wrap for texture along the inside of the circle. Then I did some little black faux stitches just to pop it out a little. I also lightly misted some turquoise onto the background to help tie it into the CS background. This was a fun easy LO to complete. Plus, Sophie helped me out with it–she told me where I needed to put the birds 🙂
