Hello friends!! Back with my second post for today. I haven't posted twice in one day in ages. Not something I generally like to do, but since the end of the month is rapidly approaching and with it the end of the Craft's Meow February sketch challenge I wanted to get my card posted to the challenge as soon as I could.
Yesterday (Monday) I got happy mail in the form of three stamp sets from the Craft's Meow (along with some stamps and dies from another company). I have used two of those TCM sets for my card... Happy as a Lark and Lark Additions. The color story comes from the current Dynamic Duo of Island Indigo and Pool Party. I don't have Island Indigo, but I discovered that Close to My Heart's Twilight is a very close match... yay!! Card pretty much explains itself... stamped the woodgrain image using Pool Party, trimmed it out and roughed up the edges. Stamped the bird using Twilight and trimmed it out. Embossed the background using my SU! honeycomb embossing folder and then roughed up the edges. The banners were cut from Pool Party and Island Indigo card stocks with my MFT Fishtail Flag Layers Stax dies and the edges roughed up. Sentiment was stamped using black ink and then everything was layered up. Easy peasy!!
Thanks for stopping by....
Supplies: Card stock: PTI Rustic White; SU! Island Indigo & Pool Party; Ink: Stampin Up! Pool Party, Close to My Heart Twilight, Memento Tuxedo Black; Embossing Folder: SU!; Dies: My Favorite Things
