Hello … bonjour! Hope your weekend has been splendid! For the first time in ages I took some time to make a card that wasn’t a DT or GD one … yay … I played! Want to see …
Yep, a little more involved than usual … but it was so much fun letting this little guy evolve! I die cut and stamped one of MFT‘s Birds of Paradise and got colouring with Promarkers, adding a smidge of detailing with a white gel pen on the leaves, flowers and feathers, a layer or two of Wink of Stella on the beak and plumage … and a touch of Glossy Accents to his eye. The leaves (also MFT) were cut from green card and were sponged at the edges with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink … and I cut a PTI banner and stamped it with a sentiment from the same set as the bird. A pierced panel (MFT I think, a Lake House goodie) was sponged with Distress Ink (Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass) and I was ready to put everything together. The leaves were attached at the spines to allow the edges to turn up, the banner was adhered flat, the bird was popped up on craft foam … and I mounted the panel on craft foam on the card base.
My card was inspired by …
Muse – We’re stepping out from the usual this time … it’s Michele’s 2016 song week, so we’ve to make a card that conveys a song title … how could I not join in? See below for Michele’s awesome make … I’m probably the last to guess it … I’ve Got The Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy Down In My Heart perhaps? Have you guessed mine yet? If so, do let me know in a comment! If not and you need a hint, you can go here and enjoy a lovely listen (it’ll be worth it)!
