I had a lot of fun making this card for the Splitcoaststampers CAS Challenge today. It was "Feathered Friends." I had been to Hobby Lobby and had picked up both of these stamps in their 75% off sale, so it was the perfect time to ink them up!
I embossed my card base (Ivory Heavyweight CS - Hobby Lobby) with the Flowers Cuttlebug embossing folder (an oldie I haven't used in awhile), and then made my front panel. The tag is from Julie Nutting's Tag Pad (Prima). I used the Wrinkle Free Distress technique, with two colors from my Distress ink (TH) collection. When dry, I stamped my bird and sentiment in VersaFine Smoky Slate (I LOVE this color!) and then added some Bay Leaf seam binding (Really Reasonable Ribbon) at the top. The last thing I did was add a very faint shadow under the bird with a Copic C1 marker.
Super cute little feathered friend! Happy Monday!
