We are playing Bingo this week at Sweet Stamps for Challenge #54. I had fun creating this card:
We hope you will join us in this challenge for a chance to win $20 of rubber stamps from SweetStamps. The challenge rules are listed in the sidebar of the challenge blog. There is alot of great inspiration on the blog as well- stop on by!
Do you love sparkle and shimmer? Try taking the Creative Inspirations Paints and dab them on to your paper for a fun fun background. I used Sage, Tu Tu Pink and Blush. I stamped and embossed the Bird on a flowering Branch image with Black Detail Embossing Powder on Cryogen White cardstock. I used the marker water coloring technique (Technique Junkies) to add color- the flowers are Shades Satin Rose water painted on with Sunshine CI paint added in the flower centers. The bird and flowers are cut from a 2nd stamped and embossed image and added for dimension. The bird is attached just in the middle and the head and tail are elevated from the cardstock.
The seam binding is painted with Creative Inspirations Paint- I wet it with water first, then painted on Tu Tu Paint and Blush CI paints. I added a Zig-Zag sewing stitch, then added three pearls in the upper corner with Liquid Pearls in Petal Pink.
