Hello there folks and hope you all had a good weekend and of course, managed to fit in a bit of crafting as I did. I was actually meant to be doing the h word but decided to play hooky for some creating.
Today's post is about the new challenge over at Make My Monday but is also rather a special one as this is post number 899 so keep your eyes open for my next post as there will be CANDY to celebrate 900!
The challenge theme at Make My Monday is my choice this time and I picked a favourite of mine, BIRDS.
Here's my inspiration which I hope you like.
My card just has the one layer attached as I stamped everything on there.
I used the Kaisercraft Porcelain Rose stamp set, first stamping the music score fragment several times around the edges. I then stamped on the bird and flower collage and added the Flonzcraft sentiment in the remaining space. All stamping was done with VersaFine Smokey Gray.
I then inked the stamped paper using a Ranger sponge applicator and Distress inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass.
I coloured the bird and flower image with Distress inks by applying them to a ceramic plate and then painting them on with a damp brush. I used Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Stormy Sky, Mowed Lawn and Frayed Burlap.
I inked around the edges with Weathered Wood Distress ink and them distressed them with an emery board before attaching the panel to a card blank.
Have a great day and see you again soon.
