I would like to extend a warm welcome to a new follower Sarah George of Sarah's Art Corner and say thanks for helping me reach my current goal of 200 followers. We're getting closer to Blog Candy Day!! I hope you'll take a few minutes to zip over, say Hi to Sarah, and tell her I sent you. Her blog is lovely.
Here's the card specs:
- Northwoods image colored with copics, spica pens with just a bit of Glossy Accents on the perched cardinal & tree stump where he perches. DI Vintage Photo was smudged around the edges of rectangle. EK Success punched photo corners from a snippet of red foil left from Christmas projects. There was a tiny snippet left, just large enough to diecut some Memory Box Resting Birds to add to the trees.
- background created using a metal Dreamweaver Birch Tree stencil over white GP; pan pastels in various shades of blues, with a bit of dark purple added in the top right corner. I quite liked this as a background, but sponging over the metal shreds a sponge quite badly. I had first tried using some Dylusions sprays over a purchased card blank. The paper was not strong enough to take the sprays and warped, although it did give a nice look. Adhered the background to a stone colored card blank from a sale package.
In the photo it looks as though the stamped image is placed a bit crooked, but when I look at the card, it looks straight. Hmmmm...so aggravating.The outer dark blue is a piece of navy cardstock placed behind the card for photographing. The card itself is the stone color.
So please take time to check out what the other DT mates have created for today's challenge over at Jo's and maybe join in the Friday fun. Rules are posted at Jo's, are very simple & it's very easy to link up. We'd love to see you there!
Have a great afternoon, a wonderful weekend, and Cyber Hugs.
