Happy Wednesday, peeps! It's the middle of the week, yay! The Curtain Call challenge this week is so sweet, I just had to play along! Check out this sweet inspiration photo:
I pulled out my favorite birdhouse image from Garden Pleasures and stamped it on some watercolor paper, then colored it with an aquapainter and reinkers in Watermelon Wonder, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake:
I had some digital gingham paper already printed up, found it in my stash and I thought it worked perfectly with this country image! I did use a mat of a new In Color called Flirty Flamingo, and I also used a new scalloped square die....both will be in the upcoming catalog! I added a little linen bow to the birdhouse:
and finally, a little sentiment from Stamplorations (Trendy Feathers), stamped on the banner from the Large Numbers Framelit, accented with a little flower:
I know the trend nowadays is to make cards that are more eclectic and free-style, but I do love this more structured, layered look....it just makes me smile! Now....to whom should I send this little note?? Maybe it will be in YOUR mailbox!
Cassidy had been bugging me for days to make "slime"...we called it flubber...so we went to work with some glue, dye and borax:
It worked! It's really weird-feeling, but it kept her entertained for quite a while!
Thanks for popping in today!
