Pretties flowers

This one – its all in the accessories!  I sponge daubered the edges of the flowers with creamy carmel and close to cocoa.  The button is tied with Linen Thread and the bow is folded over pieces of ribbon.

Paper:  Whisper white, Chocolate chip designer prints paper

Ink:  Chocolate chip, close to cocoa, creamy caramel

The crazy bird

I made this bird a while back- maybe even July or August? It was when I learned the technique of ribbon fraying. You pull a small piece of the end of the grosgrain(only 1 end works) and you unravel the ribbon. That’s how I got the crazy Birds hair.

The Bird is cut from the Oval coluzzle in so saffron. I sponged the edges in pumpkin ink. The grass is hand cut from scraps then I ran them through the crimper. The nose and legs are also hand cut. To see my inspiration, click here.

Stamps: circle of friendship (retired)
Paper: so saffron, old olive and rose red card stock and DSP
Ink: rose red, pumpkin
Accessories: ribbon, oval coluzzle, paper crimper, circle punches
