New Card Projects

It has been a while since I posted card projects so here are some new ones!

1st Card
A sweet little birdie

Materials used
- Turquoise printed card stock for the actual card
- Denim print paper from an Authentique 6x6 pad, cut, with rounded corners and inked edges
- Cream card stock which was first 1) repeatedly distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and sanding until I reached the desired effect. 2) stamped and embossed with a bird and nest image, then 3) colored with Spectrum Noir markers and Prismacolor pencils.  The edges were inked once complete.  A layering technique was used on the nest with a 2nd stamped, embossed and cutout nest image.
- The label  was created from a vellum quote which was a overlay for a larger label in the denim print paper.
- As a final touch, embellishments were added such as with mini paper roses, a navy polka dot bow, stickles glitter glue here and there and Turquoise pearl accents

Materials used
