I have been struggling, as many of you know, with keeping things clean and simple. There has been many discussions and great coachings but every so often I need a strong reminder to pull back on the reigns. One of my crafting enablers had a birthday recently and her style is clean, simple and elegant. She likes the Dina Wakley chickadees and so the focus of the birthday card was this adorable little sparrow. And without much fuss and mess I crafted a CAS card.
I started the background by splattering and dripping silks acrylic glaze (fuzzy peach) onto heavy white cardstock (I said there wasn't MUCH mess; there always has to be a bit of mess). I highlighted and transformed the splatters into little precious flowers with my gelly roll pen (black). The sparrow was highlighted with vintage photo distress ink and perched onto of a Memory Box birch tree (converted into a branch) which was cut from cherry wood paper.
Coming soon: Father's Day cards (either late for this, early for next year or something to consider for that special man birthday), Finnabair, Dina Wakley and the two retirement/memory books.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
