It is Monday - time to show some love to your oldier supplies. Today I am using an older piece of patterned paper (Pink); old book pages and a sentiment stamp I have had for awhile.
I drew the little bird on some book pages. He is colored with InkIntense colors and then cut out. My inspiration for the bird was from Pinterest. I find that I like drawing birds.
The background piece (yellow) is two layers of book pages which have gesso added to them and then a light color wash of yellow. It picks up the yellow in the bird. The bird was glued to the background. I stenciled some embossing paste dots around the bird. I stamped little black stars (it needed something more so that is why I added the stars.) I assembled the card and added the sentiment. I then put the entire card in a box lid and misted over the top with a grey spray. The mist falls gently onto the card front. I love the little extra the mist adds to the card.
I am entering the card in three challenges.
The first challenge is the Monday challenge blog for Simon Says where the challenge is "holly jolly stamping." The sentiment and stars are stamped.
The second challenge is the mixed media challenge at Happy Little Stampers. The challenge is "Anything Goes."
The third challenge is the Christmas challenge at Happy Little Stampers. The challenge is to use a star on your Christmas card.
Thanks for stopping by and remember to show some love for your oldier supplies.
