Good morning everyone on a currently bright and sunny though cold Bank Holiday Monday. Hope it stays this way as we're off to my brother and sister in law's Silver Wedding celebration later today.
Being Monday, there's a new challenge for you over at Make My Monday and it's our last Things With Wings theme - this time Suzanne has a gorgeous Photo Inspiration for you but please don't forget the Wings!
I took my inspiration from the pink, green and white shades and the lovely roses surrounding the cage for my project.
I stamped my favourite rose (a huge one by B Line Designs) on the side of a piece of A5 card with VersaFine Spanish Moss ink and coloured it with Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet, Shabby Shutters and Crushed Olive Distress inks. I added a little Worn Lipstick round the outer petal edges.
I then sponged Shabby Shutters all over the remainder of the card and stamped the text (Hobby Art's Shakespeare Sonnet) on the left side. I then stamped a flourish from Paper Artsy Hot Pick HP1005 all round the edges to add texture.
My bird cage is cut from recycled grey board with the Tim Holtz die and I then embossed it with the Cuttlebug Textile folder. I painted it with antique white acylic paint, heat embossed it and then inked the outer edgees with Palette Cognac ink.
I finished off my card with a little bird from the Papermania PMA 9074003 clear stamp set stamped with brown ink and coloured with Promarkers.
Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog for some great inspiration and hope to see lots more entries this week as last week's acetate theme seemed to have stumped everyone!
My card is for the following challenges:
Opus Gluei - Coming Up Roses or Rosettes
Jellypark Challenges - Punches and/or Die Cuts
CASE Study Challenge - Signature Style (mine is making my own decorative papers usually vintage in style)
Moving Along With The Times - Birdys
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
