Hey Little Blue Bird

Good morning and happy Friday! I participated in the Limited Supply challenge at SCS today. We were to do two things to "stretch" ourselves. I added designer paper and used my crimper tool (formerly, only used to do crimped envelope cards).

The DP is from Sale-a-bration this year. I have a very difficult time using designer paper and need to challenge myself with it more often.

I used my Copic markers to color the bird image from Home Tweet Home and the branch from Autumn Leaves. I sponged the background with Certainly Celery ink and then stamped a few stems from Botanical Dreams, also with Certainly Celery. Then I crimped the card stock. The scalloped layer is cut using my scallop rectangle nestabilities.

The larger layer is So Saffron, that was sponged with So Saffron ink and the card base is Baja Breeze (in color from SU).


Thanks for coming by. I hope you have a great weekend!
