This is a card that I have been playing around with for a while. I would add things and then take things away. Well here is the final product...I think?? What do you think? I do love the colors. Ok, I was not going to do this, but I am posting I guess what would be a before and after....The first picture is the final product. The second is a close up of that and the third was what I first created.
All products are from Stampin' Up!, except for the antique copper brads which are from Making Memories! The stamps are from the set Fun & Fast Notes and the coordinating wheel, Fast Flowers. I chose blush blossom to be the base of the card. I then used close to cocoa, mellow moss, and very vanilla. I used my corner rounder for the scallops and the two corners of the main image. I also used my mat pack and the paper piercer for the corners and the horizontal strip of mellow moss. I got to use one of my favorite punches, the round tab punch for the saying! I stamped the image and the saying with close to cocoa to match the background. I used blush blossom, mellow moss, pale plum, and barely banana pastels to color in the sweet little bird with the flower. I also used versamark to create the background. I also used clear embossing powder and my heating tool.
Well what do you think?
Thanks for looking and enjoy!
