Hi - I'm back today with a card I did last night. I saw this lime green/black paper at Paper Pickle this week, and just knew I had to have it. Wasn't sure what I was going to do with it until I started playing around. So a bit of embossing, distress inks, die cuts it all came together.
The image I used is called solid flowery weeds.
I embossed the flowery weed on a manilla tag using black embossing powder. Next I sponged TH Distress inks - mustard seed, peeled paint, crushed olive, shabby shutters, pumice stone and walnut stain. Doily was cut out using a Cheery Lynn Die. I used a happy birthday sentiment from Stamping Bella (sorry can't seem to find it to link it up). For my ribbon, I used some funky lime green lacy ribbon- had this for so long, finally had a chance to use it!
See that little bird on my tag, well these are small wood veneer die cuts. I sponged some peeled paint and then a bit of walnut stain and the adhered it using a glue dot. Just a nice little addition to my card.
These die cuts are by Studio Calico. I also bought a pkg of the butterflies as well.
Well, that does it for today. Thanks for coming by. Enjoy your weekend!
