Here's our sketch for you this week at Try Stampin On Tuesday with the option of Patterns.

I had a great play with this one and grabbed some Tim Holtz and Stampin Up stuff to play with.  I started off by making a background for my bird with the new Tim Holtz Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink mixed with Gathered Twigs.  What better colour for a bird than that gorgeous blue.  I used the Feathered Friends thinlets by Tim Holtz to cut out my bird. I added some Versamark with an embossing pen and then added clear embossing to give my bird some shine.  So that he had something to stand on I cut out one of the framelits from Colourful Seasons and also the little leaves are from That's The Tag and glued them on to the branch. I added a touch of linen thread to represent a nest for my bird.

The patterned backgrounds used some of the same Tim Holtz colours of the blue and the brown but I stamped some patterns from Gorgeous Grunge on to them and cut them out with stitched framelits.  I continued the pattern of dots onto the background card stock and sponged the edges.  The musical notes are drawn by hand.  The little sentiment is from a book of sayings by Tim Holtz and I added a button with some of the same thread.

Fiona - love the Tim Holtz shade of blue you used for the background! VERY clever the way you used dots in so many ways on your card! It caught my eye right away when I saw it. Always love to see what creative talents you bring to bear when you make a TSOT inspiration card! -Donna
