Had a great start to my day off when I happened to be at the kitchen window as 2 Black-headed Grosbeaks came to my bird feeder. They're strikingly beautiful!
Last minute, but wanted to participate in the celebration of Flourishes 6th Birthday. Heather Jensen's inked background technique for the Color Your World challenge intrigued me as I didn't know you could sponge over an image stamped in Memento ink. I used one of my favorite Flourishes stamp sets called Thinking of You. My Distress Inks are shaded lilac, squeezed lemonade & peacock feathers. These tiny black gems were in a close-out sale making it inexpensive to create a frame with them. The image was die cut with a Spellbinders oval & attached with foam tape to the card made with Spellbinders Labels Ten using a soft metallic gray for the front. Finished off with a little sheer black bow & now I have a card ready for a birthday or to send a note to a friend. Thanks for stopping by & letting me know your thoughts.
