Speedy's Friends challenge #31, EtsyInpsired Challenge #116
I have made my card for two challenges:
Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge #31 at Mark's Finest Papers -have a bow on your card (mine is fake (punched)) but a bow just the same)
EtsyInspired Challenge #116 We are to be inspired from paintings and creations from Heartsong
I was inspired by the awesome blue colors and the bird from Evening Song shown below:
I decided to try a Folded Paper Frame which I really love to frame the dove. I thought the musical paper would be perfect for the dove as birds, even doves sing/coo.
I stamped the dove 3 times, cut out and popped each with dimensionals after stamping each one with VersaMark Dazzle and clear embossing glitter, heating.
The snowflake was punched 3 times, glittered, and embossed.
I added glitter and chunky Twinklet Diamond Dust to the outer white part of the frame.
The cardstock under my patterned paper and the bow are blue, although it may look black. No matter what I did, the dark, All Night Navy showed up very dark in the photo.
