Dream, Wish and Fly

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A nice lie in this morning, housework and now snug as a bug in a rug in my craft room.  I made today's card yesterday using papers I made after Christmas and put to one side. 

I have used my Chocolate Baroque Steampunk Birds stamps to make this card.  They have a sale on too so why not hop on over and see if any of their lush stamps take your fancy.  My wish list is a mile long LOL!  I just love these stamps.  All my male family members are sorted for this year ;)


Recipe

1. A4 white pearlescent card scored and created an A5 card
2. Using Spellbinder Rectangle Dies I cut out a piece of Navy Blue and Purple card
3. The next layer I made using Distress Stains in Dusty Concorde and Broken China, I used a couple of masks and Faded Jeans the spritzed with Silver Mica Spray.  I then embossed with Darise embossing folder and cut out using Spellbinder Curved Rectangle.
4. The birds I stamped onto Supersmooth with Versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder, they have been coloured with Copic Ciao Pens then cut out and layered onto the card.
5. I cut out the cogs using Spellbinder Cogs and Sprocket dies in two tone card and added Navy Blue card candi to the centres.
6. To finish off I added Tim Holtz Chit Chat words Dream, Wish and Fly.


Thank you for stopping by Today
