Mixed Media---Birds

I love the mix-ability challenge on Splitcoaststampers. This week, the Mix66 challenge is to make a card with THINGS THAT FLY and use at least two types of mediums. Loving birds, I went with a pretty, wooden bird.

I used a piece of pattered paper and brushed on a bit of American  acrylic paint in pink.  Tim Holtz Distressed Paints-Broken China is used for the bird and a bit at the top. After it dried I stamped some tiny flowers from Stamps by Judith.

I used a stencil from Dylusions-chequered dots-and rubbed over it with Inka Gold Metallic Rub/green yellow. The other stencil is just a piece of needlework canvas I bought at Hobby Lobby. It is done with Tim Holtz Barn door  Distressed Paints and pink acrylic paint.

The bird is KaiserCraft wood flourishes/bird and the patterned paper is DCWV art collage art stack.

 I'm entering my card here:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge-Not so mellow yellow-Be inspired by yellow (The yellow is in my patterned paper).

Shooting Stars

 Today's CAS challenge #270 on Splitcoaststampers is to use stars. I love my star dies but thought I would use a new stamp instead.

Sometimes, I need a belated birthday know when a birthday comes and you somehow missed it because you were so busy with so many things. You know how that happens, don't you? :-)

We're expecting some bad weather today so I'll try to get around and visit before that happens. I'm thinking I'll be heading for shelter later today. The tornado season is upon us.

Stamps-Taylored Expressions/Shooting Stars
Paper-PTI white cardstock, gray cardstock
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics-Y15, C1, T3, R81
