Blackberry Bird

Good morning everyone! I hope you are ready for another week! I think I could use another day of the weekend! Saturday was a long day of soccer games in the hot sun! Ugh! I got burned even though I used sunscreen and sat in the shade! How does that happen? Yesterday I got a lot of stamping done but still have quite a bit more to do so I will be working on that throughout the week after I get home from school. I do like my job but it sure gets in the way of the fun stuff - lol!

Today's card was one that I did a while ago. I wasn't sure how I felt about it. I tried the splattering thing and it just didn't do it the way I wanted.

  • Card base is Smoky Slate
  • On a piece of Smoky Slate stamp the sentiment from Choose Happiness using Smoky Slate and Blackberry Bliss markers to ink it with
  • Tie a piece of Blackberry Bliss stitched satin ribbon around the panel and adhere to card
  • Stamp the flower onto a piece of Naturals White using Hello Honey ink
  • Stamp the stem using Mossy Meadow ink and use a blender pen to pull color into the leaves
  • Adhere panel to a piece of Blackberry Bliss and then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the bird image onto a piece of Naturals White using Blackberry Bliss ink and cut out then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • (Here's the step I would leave out next time) Use an aqua painter and Smoky Slate ink to splatter the card - maybe yours will look better than mine...
Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
