The mid week throwdown this week on OWH is for birthday cards. I have been working exlusively with my very old 6" pads of Basic Grey paper for over a week now. This line is almost gone. I stamped the image on the card and then stamped again on the solid paper. I paper pieced that onto the card. I added some Sakura clear Glaze pen to the fancy parts of the bird. I had enough paper for 2 cards.
pattered paper-Basic Grey Phoebe
bird stamp-Autumn Leaves
sentiment stamp-Layers of Color
ink-Versafine Olympia Green
My daughter gave me several of these acrylic embellishments. I added a little adhesive to the backs just to make sure they held good. Some I mounted on black card stock to give them a little more importance
I am trying to get some more cards in my OWH box before I mail it. I decided it needed some more thank you cards so I got busy yesterday. The same design on all.
This group is made with the Basic Grey Romani line. Sick of seeing it in my container. I still have a lot left. Actually, I have a lot of small papers from Basic Grey. We won't even talk about the big sheets my daughter passed on to me. Oh, now I feel compelled to count the big ones. I will be right back. How about 71. I am thinking of declaring February Basic Grey month in my house and using nothing else.
This group is made with a pad of DCWV butterfly that I bought on the cheap. Trying to use this strange paper up also.
I have so much pretty paper. I don't know why I feel compelled to use up this paper that I am not crazy about.
Shuffling around the same papers to use them up. The funny plaid is the reverse of the argyle. I was trying for a masculine look. This is the first time I have used this stamp from My Favorite Things. I think it was in a set I received on the OWH cruise.
