March Friends of Unity Blog Hop ~ FOU Sketch

 Hello, friends! Welcome to our March Friends of Unity Blog Hop!

This months que is an FOU Sketch challenge. And guess what!? You get to play along! Be sure to save this sketch image, create your own card using the prompt and tag me in the Unity Show and Tell group! I am truly excited to see you all play along with us!


I wish I had been able to make more than one card, but I do so love the card I was able to create using this sketch!

This lovely bird is from the June 2020 KOM called Change the World. I hadn't used him yet and just fell in love with this stamp! I really had fun layering different colors from my Altenew watercolor pan set. I love to color my birds after a specific classifications. This one I colored after the sparrow. I just love the finished look to him!

The sentiment is from a recently new set called Gotta Love Sentiments. It has 14 various sentiments in this same font style.


I am loving the vine wreath that rests behind him. I purchased it from Gina Marie Designs. (She has the best and best priced metal dies on the market!)

Be creative as you follow the sketch guideline putting your own twist on each section. As I did here with the hearts in the upper right!

Both background papers I used on this card are from the Unity Stamp Co. paper set called Rustic Wood. If you have not checked out Unity's long list of custom 6x6 designer paper packs, you must!



I hope you love this card as much as I do!

My hope is that you read through the entire blog. Makes my heart so happy thinking you do!

As always~

Until next time~

Be blessed, friends!

  17. Oh my goodness, this card is so beautiful I love the combination of die cuts and that sweet little bird. The watercoloring give him a vintage look that contrasts wonderfully with the clean lines of the sketch and die cut wreath.
