Smile

Hello Blog Friends - I have had a little but of 'spare time' in The Studio and have enjoyed creating a collage style card using bits and pieces that are gathering on my desk - personally I love creating this way - it is a challenge to bring them together in a way that looks like 'it was meant to be!'


    The base for this card has been cut/embossed using the A2 Curved Matting Basics A Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Card Creator.  I have used some gorgeous patterned paper I received in a RAK - I love it and it lends itself to collage style - in my opinion anyway! This has been layered onto the card base using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Foam Tape.


The bird image is from the Kaisercraft Fly Free Acrylic stamp set and has been coloured using Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko Memento Inks.  The image has then been cut out by hand/fussy cut and popped up onto the pattered paper using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares. Kindy Glitz has been lightly added for a 'touch' of shimmer,


I have written the sentiment by hand, A precut frame has been adhered over the top and Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Shimmer has been added over the top.  This has been popped up onto an oval tag from the Fleur de Elegance Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Decorative Accents, this has been sponged using Tsukineko Memento Dye Ink in Teal Zeal and adhered using double sided tape.  Random 'dots' of Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Dandelion have been added to the background, along with Washi Tape.
