Spread your Wings

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How was your weekend?

We had a busy weekend. I was at a workshop on Saturday and then Sunday Rick and I were invited to our good friends for Sunday lunch which was lovely to catch up.

The winners of my Pay it Forward and Steampunk frame have been announced in the video below.

Today a card using another of Tim Holtz stamps this time Crazy Birds.

Step by Step

1. A6 cream card base.
2. First layer is patterned card from my stash, I distressed around the edges with cracked pistachio before matting and layering onto the base card.
3. The next layer is patterned card which I have used Tim Holtz cracked glass stencil and Gesso. Once dry I distressed with cracked pistachio before cleaning ink off the Gesso then matted and layered to base card.
4. Stamped the crazy bird and coloured with Copics, cut him out and adhered to card.
5. To finish off I stamped the quote using Versafine Spanish moss, embossed with clear embossing powder and distressed with cracked pistachio. I then cut out to small feathers from dies and coloured with Spanish moss.
