Hello Friend



I had a glorious summer off and now I am back to work.  As expected, I am having trouble finding time to craft, but I think about it all of the time.  This creation was rolling around in my head this morning at 4:30. I could not go back to sleep, so I finally just got up and made it!


The "Less Is More" challenge for week 32, is a ONE LAYER CARD entitled SEEING DOUBLE. Chrissie and Mandi would like to see TWO of something on our entries this week.  These little birdies from PTI's Little Bitty Bird set came to mind immediately.  I wanted to add a little texture so I stamped the SU "Sanded" background stamp on to the entire card with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink. I then stamped the two branches with VersaFine Vintage Sepia and colored the leaves with Forest Moss and Bundled Sage. I colored the birds with Barn Door.  I used my red atyou spica glitter pen on the wings to give them sparkle. The sentiment is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. 

Thank you for stopping in today.  I am off to see what other Limettes have up their sleeves this week!

I thought your images were stamped onto kraft card but you say it's a background stamp, that's fantastic.

Great birdie images and colouring. A fantastic card! :-)

I love it - 4:30AM - a design that could not wait! I guess that's what I need to do, too - otherwise when can one create?

This is really an adorable card - and with sparkly bling! Isn't that "sanded" background the absolute best?! Great choice - I love how you gave this background so much subtle texture - fabulous CAS!
