This was for the IC115 challenge at splitcoaststampers. Here's the inspiration piece picture. My inspiration from the picture was to use the bird somehow and the colors. I added in the stripes too by adding ribbon.
I also want to welcome SmilynStef. She's our New Hostess with the mostess and I want to say so long to kthaman, I'll miss your wonderful picks for the challenge. Best of luck. The ic is one of my Favorite challenges of the week and I usually can't resist playing.
Stamps: spring solitude with wheel to match from Stampin up, I used the weathered bg from stampin up to make the tree.
Ink: Chocolate chip I used for the tree and branch and the bg on the choc chip cs. really rust, garden green I used on the bird plus the garden green on the branch.. I used the garden green over the choc chip to make it look darker some., brown stazon was used for the sentiment because it's darker, brown micron marker for the line down the side of the tree, and last white craft for the bg.
Paper: Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla, Chocolate chip.
Accessories: brads from Miichaels crafts, chocolate chip thin grosgrain ribbon now retired from Stampin up and for the piercing I used an eraser with a stick pin. I used my fiskers score blade for the scored frame and the scoring along the bottom of the card, dotted ribbon is from michaels crafts too. I used my thin wheel for the bg and lastly I used my dimentionals to raise the picture up from the base.
Technique: paper piercing, scoring,
Thanks for looking everybody and have a great Saturday!! :)
