Yup yup yup it's that time again!!! CHALLENGE TIME and this month we are playing with
Thank goodness!! So happy!! LOL! I thought I would play with the new Pion Papers "The Songbird's Secret" and cut one of the images from the 12 x 12 "Perching Bird". I know, cut into a gorgeous piece of paper?!! GASP!!! 😱 Wasn't it worth it tho? It was the perfect fit for the Scrapiniec "Lavender Mist" frame. I love this new Marianne die simply called "Butterfly Border" - stunning isn't it?! It even comes with 2 separate butterfly dies which I thought was brilliant!! They are different sizes so you can either pop them onto the border like I have here or you could center the smaller die cut over the bigger one. I've done that too and it looks very pretty.
This is a new birdcage out from Joy - Little Happiness - and I embossed it using Stampendous "aged gold" embossing enamel. I added a chipboard bird, which I colored by tinting some white gesso with walnut stain distress ink. Then I covered it with Crackle accents to get that weathered look...ummm ya so that didn't work out the way I had in mind. Dang it! ha ha ha!
Well please stay tuned as I have another card to share with you tomorrow already. I'll give you a hint....masculine. OK OK that's it!! LOL!! Have a wonderful week and thank you so much for dropping by!
