Black Birds in the Sky

It's sketch time over at  Less is More this week.
 
I am not too good at thinking outside the box with sketches. I tend to stick to the same layout. Some crafters are very inventive with their interpretations and there are quite a few in this week's submissions to date.
 
Here is my card.

The chalks and the Spellbinders circle die were still on my desk from a previous challenge entry so I started there.  I really love the Clarity hummingbirds stamps (there are more than this one). The title of this post may be misleading but there is a space between the words and I have used Black Versafine ink to stamp!
 
I stamped the wing twice more and cut them out to add to the impression of flight. I then die cut a circle from card and used the aperture as a mask before applying chalk to create the sky. I then ran a pen around the aperture to link the two birds together.
I photographed the card in the garden (between showers) and looked up to see a buzzard circling above. As I had the camera in my hand, I took a picture.  Too far away to be clear but lovely to see anyway.
