Hello and thank-you for visiting! I'm back from a lovely holiday and happy to be crafting again. I've gone for a buttery, yellow shade with my card depicting a family of little birdies twittering in the sunshine.
Several months back I won some beautiful Pion Design papers from their 'Flower Frames' collection. I've finally cut into these gorgeous papers for the first time. The family of birds is a Magenta stamp that I've gold embossed and then coloured in with my Tim Holtz water pen using Tea Dye DI. Diecut the top upper layer with a MFT die. I was wondering what to do for the lower layer and looking around the room my eyes happened upon the curtains - thus getting the idea to 'triple pleat' the lower yellow paper (used glue gun for rapid sticking of pleats). I inked all edges of the various paper layers with Krylon gold leafing pen. Drew some little dotty doodads with waco gold pearl pen. Rubbed gilding wax across some flowers and chipboard honeycomb. Added ribbon, tulle, muslin, and pins. Finished off with sparkling gems for the birds' eyes.
I'm so glad you stopped by - your visits are much appreciated. Hope there is sunshine in your life today (whether real or metaphorical).
