This card is based on to inspirations. The first is from Leslie at Running with Scissors . She did a fantastic card using a TP method and Poppin pastels. Check out the link above for the tutorial and instructions. I followed her instructions for creating this background, It's so neat because it almost looks like stone. The next inspiration is from Claudia over at Pretty Pressings. She Paired up this lovely saying with this stamp of Tilda and bird. In her case she used it for a baby greeting. For this I'm leaving it open as to what the bird told her ( birthday, wedding, etc..).
Stamps: Magnolia girl and sign, SU DD Wildflowers, Carte Postal, French Flair
Paper: Very Vanilla, Fabriano Watercolor paper, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Ranger Distress in Tea Dye, Vintageand Walnut stain, Stewart superior in Burnt Umber, Versamark
Chalks: Pumpkin, Mustard, Old Olive, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip, Caramel
Other: various SU re-inkers, Twinkling H2O's, Cinnamon Stickles, Quickutz bird ( from trio), Spica Glitter pen in orange and clear, White Gel pen, Chocolate Satin Ribbon, Glue dots and pop-up dots. Oval Nestabilities, Krylon fixative, Angel Glimmer mist in Tiger lily and Olive.
I wish you could see this up close, It sparkles and shines in a way that the camera just can't capture ( although I did try) . The girl was colored with a mix of reinkers and Twinkling H2O's and then Spica was added to the skirt, shirt and hair for extra glimmer. The background was sprayed with Angel mist before using the fixative to keep the chalk from transfering. The popped up flowers are also chalk and versamard then fixative. Edge of oval was distressed. Hope you like!
