Spring Bird

I made a double challenge card today. This is for Gina's challenge, which you can read about here, and for the special Holiday Challenge Extravaganza Day 8 at SCS, and the stamp simply challenge by Sharon, to use something new. Gina's challenge was to double mat your focal image and the SCS challenge was an inspiration challenge using this photo.

I used a stamp from Home Tweet Home for the main image and colored it with my new Copic markers. Then I went over the image with a Versa Mark pen and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Next I sponged the background with Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose, then stamped some of the images from Tropical Flowers with Brilliance white and Pretty in Pink. I used my new square scallop nestabilities on the Pink Pirouette layer and then did some sponging with Regal Rose on the edge.

Thanks for looking. I hope your day is filled with happiness!

Love the last 3 posts Theresa. That little love bug is so cute and I really like the way you used the ribbon on the last card.

Glad you had a lovely Christmas and all the best for 2009.
