STV's Center Stage Spotlight Group Hop - Inspiration Challenge

Hi there,
 Welcome to our June STV Center Stage Spotlight Group Hop...if you are hopping you should have come from the awesome blog of sweet team mate Karen Knegten ......

This month we were challenged to use this gorgeous inspiration from Vicki Dutcher ...

I absolutely fell in love with this! 
Many times I receive emails and comments on how much they like what I create but don't have "the time"..trust me...I don't have the time either LOL...so when I saw this from Vicki...whooo hoooo!
I printed it and let it be the main focus on my project below....I had already started this $1.00 notebook some time ago by painting it using acrylic blue paint and stamped a vine with gesso! But it has sat in my "to finish" pile for quite some time... But when I saw this photo, it was perfect for my notebook.
   I added the printed photo, stash lace, GKD organdy ribbon with Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive. Then stamped the bird and sentiment from GKD's Birds and Blossoms by Theresa Momber using Memento Black.  There is also a leaf stamp added from the GKD Stamp Kit "Signs of Autumn" using Memento Danube Blue. Colored the bird...DONE!

so no time! well, this took 20 minutes!!! Let this gorgeous photo inspiration do the work for you (-:


Bird colored with Copics: B23, 29, E04, Y17, YG95 and G09...outlined edges by very lightly sponging with Memento Grape.

Hope you were inspired - this one is an easy one to recreate!

Next stop is our talented teammate (and a grandma again!) Miesje Flach...

hugs,
