Here's today's card -
Couture Creations Small Dots Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Raisin Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
Creative Expressions Fern Fronds Background onto some copy paper and then onto some Milk Card (without re-inking) using Meadow Adirondack Dye Ink. I wanted a lighter image that's obtained from 2nd generation stamping. I made sure the ink was dry, dusted it with my anti static bag and stamped the Birdhouse from the Home Tweet Home Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using scissors and went around the edges with a Black Marker Pen to hide any white bits.
Valencia Die Set (Spanish Collection) out of Brunswick Green Card. At the emboss stage I added the Openwork Mask.
I tied a bow using Green/Ivory Striped Grosgrain and added a Bronze Vintage Button.
Cream 8mm Pearl in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Golden Green around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
Thank you a very nice card. Have a good weekend Kitty

I love the concept but the green looks too dark for me (on my screen anyway!) and although I love the look of the raisin colour I wouldn't have put it with green (that's an old art teacher telling me that donkeys years ago - I know Nature and all that!)ReplyDelete
Lovely card Julia, it has a very folksy almost Scandanavian feel to it.ReplyDelete

Morning Julia, a very pretty card loving the birdhouses.ReplyDelete
Hi Julia, lovely little birdhouse but red and green together don't appeal to me, I think it is the green a little too heavy, best wishes Jackie DReplyDelete
A lovely card but the colours to me are a little too heavy, sorry
