Blue Bird


Good Morning. I'm up late but man it feels good to sleep in once in awhile. Here is my card I made for the Rose's (Sue, Kerrie, Connie, Kym, Betty and myself) monthly challenge. Betty was the Queen Rose this month and not only set the challenge, sent us a stamp and dp. The stamp is fro Martha Stewart, I opt not to use her dp, sorry Betty. This is some of the yellow that came in a sample pack from SU so I'm not sure about the name of it. I embossed it with that Kassie's Brocade from Cuttlebug and the little thingies are cut out with the Fleur De Lis, ( I know now it means Flower) thanks Lori! I also cut the circle out with the leaves hanging over like Gina K showed in one of her videos. Added pearls and ta da!! Oh yeah, colored with Prisma Pencils. That's it for now, coffee is ready so later yall, I may be back. I do want to make cards for this weeks challenges over at STV. So until then, Happy Stamping!!

Olga,
Love the coloring of this bird. How creative it looks like there are feathers sticking out of your circle and love the way you extended the leaves!
I have lots to post so I'd better get going.

I see The Roses have surfaced this morning! Loving all the birdies! My niece and her hubby are coming down from NY today to discuss the photography for Dee's wedding so I might not get to play until nighttime. Thanks for stopping by to see my card for Joan's Garden yesterday. I like that one!

There's always going to be at least one rebel in a group!! However, you've created such a pretty card for your focal bluebird. I love that embossing folder and the addition of the pearls. Have a great day!

Your welcome, Olga! A little tidbit of knowledge I picked up somewhere. Love the way the 'leaves hanging over the circle' technique looks! tehe. Your coloring is fab and the bit of sponging, I think, around the circle is beautiful. I have to go check out the dp that the conformists used. :-)

Great card Olga. Love how you sponged around the image.

Patti said...

I love to see what the Roses are up too! You never disappoint! Super sweet card!

Kerrie said...
