Happy Wednesday, peeps! We survived the big storm...it wasn't really much of a blizzard, a few inches of snow and lots of sleet! Gave me some time to spend in my craft room, though! I created a vintage sort of card, one I haven't done for a while, and it incorporated three challenges:
The Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration sketch challenge, the Retro Rubber challenge and the SU Only Challenge of Things That Fly!
I pulled out one of my favorite stamp sets, Nature Walk (January 2011) and paired it with Tiny Tags (January 2010) for my vintage creation today:
I don't remember the name of this DSP, but I am pretty sure it came out around the same time as Nature Walk; I added some additional "flying" things, stamped directly on to the DSP with Marina Mist ink, in the form of bees and butterflies:
I stamped the bird with Versamark and Marina Mist ink, then heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder so I could watercolor him a wee bit with Marina Mist ink. I did some diecutting to mount him on a stitched circle and scalloped square, then added my embellishments: leaves, paper button, little tag, burlap, lace and stitched ribbon trims!
Remember this button die? It's one old die I will never part with! I cut out the button three times and adhered them together, then stamped it with the woodgrain image from Timeless Textures...it really looks like wood! I did the same thing with the Flourishes leaves:
I left in the inside blank; I could use this as a get well or a birthday card, or just about anything! Love this little bird!
We went out sledding yesterday but the wind was pretty wicked and raw, so we didn't stay out too long, but we got in a few good rides! Cass & Dana almost ran into a tree, but it was still fun! At least we got a chance to use the new sled I just bought to replace the one I broke last time I went sledding, LOL!
Enjoy your day!
