I created this card for the current Impression Obsession Challenge – You’re a hoot! (owls and birds)!
I cut the IO house (DIE009-Z on sale 50% off)) from Kraft paper and made the woodgrain by brushing on distress inks: brushed corduroy, walnut stain, dusty concord and black soot. I stamped the IO sentiment, ‘A Little Birdie‘ (CL194 on sale 50% off), on a die cut Kraft circle, added the cheering up sentiment from the same set and sponged the edges with the same distress ink colours; then it was attached with foam tape. I added a die cut IO bird (DIE003-A) that I painted with dusty concord and wild honey distress inks.
I placed the house die over the left edge for a side fold card and I stamped the IO sentiment ‘some birdy‘ (A5418 ) on the inside along with the IO hugs (DIE516-A), sponged with dusty concord and black soot distress inks.
I’m also playing along with these challenges:
thanks for popping by.
