Today is my hubby's 45th birthday! Just took him to dinner at Outback and had a few minutes before going to see The American to post his card. This is the card I made him. He is a bird lover and so I had to incorporate birds into it. I chose the Colour Q challenge for his card because it has such great masculine colors this week! Great timing!
I've been working with paint chips for the Gingersnap Creations Scraplings trade and was inspired to simulate the effect on this card with the blues. Unfortunately, I didn't have blue paint chips that were appropriate so I cut three strips of cardstock for the different blues here applied them on the suede backing and then stamped them.
Stamps: Take Flight - Red Lead Paperworks; Sentiment - Anna Griffin.
Paper: All cardstock except for brown tag and brown backing behind bird image that is brown buckskin suede texture.
Ink: Staz On Timber Brown.
Extras: Cuttlebug leafy branch emboss folder; navy raffia wire; brown suede rope; metal leaves and metal button.
Have a Flutterby night!
