You´re The Best

lördag 4 januari 2014

Hello friends, followers and visitors!
Now that the holidays soon are over I've finally got back on the track. Our house has been more or less full all the time and there has not been much crafting time over, so now I have a strong need to throw me over my crafting stuff.
The first project for the year will be a card for a man. When I was looking through last year's projects, I found some nice ones for men which I had made at the beginning of last year, so it inspired me to do this.

I started with a piece of paper that I saved for months waiting to be used, where I used the stencil Mini Deco Doily from The Crafters Workshop together with Graphite Inka Gold. I cut it out and placed it behind the image from PION design.
The little bird was first covered with white Gesso, then I added  clear rock candy Distress crackle paint and little Stampendous Shabby Blue embossing pouder.

The small Memory Box Blooming Poinsettia flowers were left after the Christmas crafting, I used Distress Stain Brushed Pewter on them and they had a beautiful silver-gray color. A flourish canvas was colored in with a few sprays and was added together with a couple of old stamps and a few other things from my stash.

This is a card in completely different colors against what I normally use. Paper by Glitz Design "Sunshine In My Soul" paper pack and sentiments from Red Rubber Stamps, cut out with Whimsy Stamps Film Strip die.
We have a very mild winter so far here where I live, I still wish it could snow a little...
Thanks so much for visiting me today!
Hugs, Birgit
