Take Flight

Hello friends, I hope you are having a good week.  I have managed to have a little creative time in The Studio, using Dies and stamps.  I love to colour but do not do it often enough but plan on changing that very soon.

The dies are newly released by Spellbinders - Take Flight Shapeabilities by Licensed Designer Seth Apter of The Altered Page.  Although this is a Grunge style Die, it certainly works well with other styles - so I had a little fun...

 The image is from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Bird Crazy  - how adorable are these - and the sentiment that goes with it.  The image has been coloured using Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko Memento Inks and Sponge Daubers - my favourite way to colour and so effective!

My background is created using  Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko Memento
Inks in Dandelion, Tangerine and Bamboo Leaves applied with a Sponge Dauber to a Stencil cut using the Grate Effect Card Creator Die to white cardstock.  This has then been cut using  the Celebra'tions Pierced Rectangles and popped up onto a pre-cut cardbase.  I have also used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner and 3D Foam Squares on my card.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
