Beate's Challenge #14



I'm back from my long weekend away, and I needed to make this card right away, so that I can send it out. (I'll post later about my weekend).

I made this using Beate's sketch #14. The designer paper is Webster's Pages Vintage Home "Shenendoah" & "Canopy" (from Jacksonbelle Embellishments). Again...I did not want to cover this gorgeous paper too much, so I left most of it uncovered. The background is stamped tone-on-tone with River Rock using Baroque. The little bird is from the Hero Arts Decorative Birds set, and colored with my Classic Inks and Aqua Painter. The sentiment is Verve Visual Thoughtful Phrases, and punched with my Word Window Punch. The gold brads are SU as well as the Very Vanilla Taffeta ribbon.

Thanks for looking, and I will post some pictures from my weekend and a RAK later today.

Stamps: Decorative Birds (Hero Arts), Baroque, Thoughtful Phrases (Verve Visual)
Card Stock: Bordering Blue, River Rock, Watercolor Paper, Vintage Home Webster's Pages; Shenendoah & Canopy
Ink: River Rock, Bordering Blue, So Saffron (the beak), Jet Black StazOn
Accessories: Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Gold Brads, Word Window Punch, Paper Piercer, Aqua Painter
