I had a busy weekend being Grammie for a couple days to my wonderful granddaughter...Love having them come home and hate seeing them leave! This morning I made a card to enter in Our Daily Bread designs (ODB) first challenge of 2009. I have never entered a challenge before; certainly don't expect to win anything; had fun being creative!
I used Kiwi Kiss as the background CS; Raspberry Tart DSP; Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon; a couple of Ice Brads; and the ODB stamp set called Flourished Christian Symbols...I did the "gradation technique" on the bird (use markers, light to dark hues, color in the solid stamp, use daubber to blend edges of color, huff (breathe) on the stamp and - VOILA! Isn't he pretty? I say 'he" because we all know that in the bird world the male is much more colorful than the female! Wonder why that is?
Gotta run - lots to do!
Hope you all are having a wonderful day!
