Hello. Welcome. Friday again! Where does the week go? Must admit I have been crazy busy doing stuff much less fun than craft, but have grabbed a few minutes, OK, maybe an hour, to make a little something. This one kinda built itself. Wouldn't that be nice if they all built themselves!! Then I could be sitting out in the sun, sipping a long cool drink with an umbrella in it. Alas, I was needed for clipping and sticking, and I'm still not sure it doesn't need a tiger........
This is my base card. I'm going with the Rubber Dance challenge colours of cinnamon brown, forget me not blue and antique white. This is my F-m-n blue card base. I ran outside and checked with the plant and IRL it's pretty close. But when I laid my cinnamon layer on it was too abrupt so I hit the blue with some gesso. Oh, now it looks like sky.....
So here's my cinnamon layer. I made this by embossing a piece of handmade off white paper with Sizzix Bricked embossing folder. Then I coloured with distress inks, frayed burlap, ripe persimmon and old paper. I just kept adding til it looked right. Then I cut with a Spelbinders border die.
It looked like sky behind an ornamental wall so I used Stamplorations Some Birds stencil and sponged white acrylic.
I added a piece of lace on the rhs and a piece of string on the lhs. I stamped the sentiment from Marks Finest Papers Tiger set and embossed with white powder. I also added some white embossing powder along the hanging wall. As I said, there might have been a tiger but he seems to have wandered off....
