Robin & Wren
Hello everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful long Labour Day Weekend! Weather was so perfect here, very little humidity, a bit of rain, but overall just an awesome weekend! Bill and I ventured out to see if we could find any early fall migrants moving from the north to the south. We did come across a few, still very few, so hopefully over the next couple of weekends we will be able to see more as the continue to fly south.
Which brings me to my card today. You know anything 'nature' related I'm in! I am in love with 'The Greetery' stamp sets. Betsy is amazing, very talented in many ways from her designing images to her beautiful display of cards. I just can't get enough of her images. My latest order from her Aug release, I receive one of two pkgs today, I think I got charged duty and taxes on the other because I have not received it yet. It just cleared the border, so I expect to pay some additional costs on that package. Oh also, I was one of the winners from her last release as well. I was selected from 'day 3' winner and received $50 gift cert - how exciting was that. I never win anything!!
Okay so enough of that, now for my card. I am using the Robin and Wren set. What I love about Betsy's sets is that they are multi-step stamping - love, love!
Sadly enough, I did not keep track of the inks I used as I made this a few weeks ago. For the background I sponged some distress oxide inks using my life changing brushes. I really like these brushes especially for soft backgrounds as I find sometimes with other sponges you can apply too heavily, where these they just seem to apply soft and if you want darker you just keep repeating.
I cut out all the pieces using the matching dies, then stamped the images onto the die cuts. For the sentiment I used one of the sentiments from The Greetery set called 'thinking of you, which was stamped in black versafine.
To finish I added some little floral sequins, wink of stella clear glitter, and some clear dots to the centers of the flowers.
I hope to get a chance one night this week to work on another card using The Greetery stamps. Thanks for your visit. Have a fabulous day!
