Hello, it's time for another challenge over at Charisma, and this week it was my turn to set the challenge and I've gone for "Watch the Birdie" as I love birds on cards (have a soft spot for owls although didn't use one on this card).
My card was one of those ones that develop & evolve as you make it, I started off with one idea using a digi from Softpencil (one of our sponsors this week) with cats & a kite on it, plus a couple of little birds, but whilst looking for backing papers to use I came across this fab sheet from the SU! set SweetPea (of course, am I using anything else these days? LOL) and I couldn't fit the digi on the card without covering the birds - so after a bit of playing around I came up with this card instead and I have to say I'm really pleased with it. I still used the kite part of the digi, and paper pieced it with some more SweetPea papers and the rest of the card came together really quickly. I very bravely stamped directly onto the card for my sentiment and even though I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up, is there anything more scary than stamping your sentiment on directly??
Here's the details:
SU! used -
DSP - SweetPea
Sentiment - Trendy Trees in Chocolate Chip ink
Cardstock - Tempting Turquoise
Ribbon - Chocolate Chip
Pen - Chocolate Chip (for the drawn on string)
Brads, small ribbon & bow from stash
Hope you can join us again this week as we've got two sponsors again so two chances to win
