Freshly Made Sketches 387

One of the sets I'll miss the most when it retires on 3 June is Best Birds. It's been my go-to watercolour set. The images work well for a range of occasions from weddings to sympathy. So today, I've given it a farewell and thanks, using the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for inspiration.

The three panels are very subtle in my take on this sketch. It farewells another favourite: the Softly Falling embossing folder. Here it's giving just an impression of falling rain for the best bird.

I've layered up the bird so that she's got some dimension from the branch. 

Farewell and thanks Best Bird and Softly Falling folder.
