Card for the Week


I didn't intend to only do one card this whole week! I got busy scrapbooking and then my little one came home from Grandma and Papa's... So today I saw this card (cwilliams) on SCS (Splitcoast Stampers) and had to make it. I still have the sketch challenge to do - it is a really good sketch so I plan on it. The color challenge this week just didn't inspire me so I will skip it. Anyway I did the three layer thing again, this time the bird is layered although my husband said it looks like it has a broken wing. Ha! funny, gee thanks. I used Diamond Glaze on the bird to make it shiny and to stand out. I also used my new "sanded" stamp from SU, too cool! I can see lots of things in the future for this background stamp! A lot of the Basic Grey scrapbooking paper looks like this was used on it so now I can kind of make my own BG-type paper. Sanded stamp and a lot of distress ink LOL :)

Thank you so much! I love these colors now, the wasabi and chocolate with ruby red and then the caramel for ink on the vanilla!
