But Tuesdays are craft day with my friends, so we all brave the heat and spend the day crafting, and talking, and laughing! Funny how those days go. I think we enjoy the friendships we share there, as much as the crafting!
Once again, I have been trying to use up some images I coloured years ago and also trying to use up some snippets. This is not the best colouring job...my markers bled outside the lines! Don't look too closely!
Started with a 5 1/2 inch square card and envelope from my stash. Added some snippets of unknown DP. I am proud to tell you that I remembered to use some washi tape. Glittered washi tape at that! I have decided that I love this particular washi. It is super slim and wraps around the cardstock so nicely, without added extra depth. The shimmer is a high degree of sparkle...and best of all...it came from the dollar store. I wrapped the washi tape round a border snippet of kraft card, to try to tie in the brown colours on the bird.
Die cut the Stamp Happens, Blubird image with a Spellbinders circle die and mounted it on a Spellbinders scallop mat (cut from a larger kraft snippet). The image was coloured with copics and generous amounts of Stardust Stickles were added here and there.
The pink on the flower blossom seemed to be asking me to add more pink to this card, Do you remember the garage sale I mentioned in my last post? Well, there was a lady selling embossed mats 20 for a dollar or 5 cents each! I picked out a couple of dollars worth...luckily one was the right shade of pink. I matted it with another kraft card snippet and off centered the Blubird image on it..
The embossing spells out Happy Birthday in all different font sizes. Solves the sentiment as well...lol Sorry, don't know the name or make of the EF...
I am entering this card in the following challenges
