Over on the Red Rubber Designs Blog it's time for another Thursday Inspirational. This time my teamie, Kendra is the hostess with the mostest and her theme is Spring.
I have made a card for her inspirational and I am really excited to share it with you. I think this card looks a little different from my usual card.
I used the Red Rubber Designs Hope Perches stamp set. As you cans see I stamped the nest as my central image. I used Distress Inks for the image and colored it in with some more distress inks. After that I serious distressed the image and added some gold embossing in smudges and some gold and distress inks to it. Finally I added a tiny gold dragonfly brad to secure some fluffy duck feathers (a gift from my brother).
The image was then popped on top of some mesh ribbon and jute twine that I unraveled and glued to a bit of turqouise paper that I also distressed and added gold ink too. I cut the paper to look like a wall hanging and added a bit of twig from my shrubs.
Next I used two of the tiny bird stamps from the same Hope Perches stamp set and stamped them with Broken China Distress Ink over a piece of cream card stock. I then sponged more ink around the edges. I mounted this too another bit of turqouise paper.
After looking at it, I decided I needed a little something more so I rooted through my embellie boxes and found another longer duck feather and a pretty sort of realistic looking butterfly. The final step was to spritz the entire card with Tattered Angels Leather colored Glimmer Mist.
I think the entire card has a lovely artsy-nature look that really captures the feeling of Spring.
