I haven't been in my workshop for what seems likes days. Between taxes and housework my energies have been spent elsewhere. Today I was able to get some creative juices flowing and created this card.
I have had this ornate tree die for a few weeks but had not tried it on a card yet. Because of its twists and curves it wouldn't cut in one pass, or two for that matter. It took several layers and angles to get a clean cut through my big kick. But alas, success.
I needed a twine or string element for a weekly challenge so I went with a rope swing. For another challenge I needed to create an element extending off the card, so I moved the tree over and added a red dove, and a third challenge was to use a Hero Arts stamp in a rainbow of colors for a birthday card. I used distress inks to color a rainbow background then added a couple of my favorite high flying birds with a little wink of Stella. So here it is... Just saying hello..... hope you have a swinging birthday!
