In The Summertime

tisdag 12 juni 2012

Hi there friends!
I have made an oblong postcard, or is it called brief card? with a lot of summer feeling.

I stamped Little Winged Friend - Together from Bildmålarna and colored it up with Copics.
Then I layered it over a piece of  paper, also from Bildmålarna.
I covered the edges of the image with small strips of white tissue paper that were glued, to get some texture.
Round the edges of the card I added Picket Fence Crackle paint.

Another bird stamp from Crafty Secrets was stamped on the paper, so that it looks like it's going to fly to its nest, and where it looks like a little happy mouse already have moved in. I happened to find it among all the old stuff in my inventory and I could not resist it.

Another old sticker in form of a pot were also added together with lace, leaf ribbon and flowers.
A sentiment, butterflies and a bird cage from Inkido was stamped on the inner card. On top I tied seam binding that I had colored in with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink., green twine and a butterfly metal charm.
That´s about it I think. As always thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Birgit
