Serene Bird



I made a card for this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger Challenge -
HERE is the fab photo Cath gave us this week - Feather Weather!


The background on the card base was created with a Stampasauros stencil and Archival Starlite Black ink which I find sponges on as a nice gray.
I used the Memory Box Serene bird die and sponged it with SU's Lucky Limeade and Cool Caribbean Ink before stamping the script partially (Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Light of Christmas background).
The rose is made with white felt and My Favorite Things Mini Rolled Rose Die-namics.
The two pins are coloured with copic ink to match the effect of the golden yellow beads in the inspiration photo.
The sentiment is Papertrey Ink's Signature Greetings.
A fun, quick card based on a fab inspiration photo!

Stopping by to leave some Moxie love. Love this card. The delicate lattice background, the colors of the bird and the chipboard branch are awesome. The flower was a wonderful touch. I love the sentiment too.

Didi said...

Hello Bridget, congrats on your win, the card is really A M A Z I N G !!! Would you please be so kind and post a link to what stencil you used? Can´t find it anywhere under the name you wrote... Thanks in advance!

Bridget said...

Didi, thanks for your kind comments! I can't find a link for the stencil either, and I'm not sure how to check on it as I bought the stencil at a craft supplies fair here in the U.K., actually in Belfast. It's not on their website either. I could try to e-mail the company and describe it to them, and if I have any luck at all, I'll let you know!
