Becky released her 7th Compose a Card challenge last week; you can see the deets HERE. I have to say, I really enjoy her challenges, you have creative freedom...within some guidelines - LOL!
I really liked the little birdy and large polka dots from her inspiration picture so those are the things I gravitated towards. My little birdy is from Imaginese, an older image called "Chick". The chick actually has legs, but my version needed to sit on this swirly rub-on branch, so I omitted the legs when inking her up. I stamped her twice, mounting the 2nd image with dimensionals.
The large polka dots were stamped with PTI's Vintage Cream...I used a few more new PTI products - can anyone spot them? PTI always makes me go cha-ching!!!
The black wool felt is actually from Wal-Mart and is self-sticking - oh yeah, love that. I bought a basic color pack which contains black, white, 2 shades of brown and a dark chocolate, should be lots of fun to play with!
Isn't that ric rac inside the card FUN? Just love it!!! I added piercing around the edge of the card and edged everything with Chai tea dye ink. The bird's flower and the flower of the rub-on both have rhinestones added for some fun bling. The button is tied off with some black hemp. Below are the Copic colors I used for coloring the bird.
Thanks for looking; hope you've had a great weekend! Hugs, ~M.
Fun Fact: 1 in 5,000 north Atlantic lobsters are born bright blue. (really??)
