My Heart Sings

Good Morning.....I guess.  Hubby and I worked in the yard again yesterday and I'm pooped. That can be such hard work. I do enjoy it, though. It was a beautiful day and we cleaned out more beds, re-mulched, and went to a plant nursery. I have plants yet to be put into the ground. Now, it is going to be a rainy weekend. I'll rest and do other things.

I'm uploading a card I made a few weeks ago and never got around to putting it on my blog. It is from doing a mixed media challenge on Splitcoaststampers, MIX64. The challenge is to mist, splash, spray, or squirt your project...create puddles if you dare.

I sprayed the bird with Heidi Swapp seafoam color shine. I used a Kite stencil/Endless for the design on the bird. It had Inka Gold Metallic Rub used on the stencil.  I see the colors from the doily are reflecting on the bird design but it really is gold. The doily stencil is by Finnabair picked up at Hobby Lobby. I used Dylusions ink spray in postbox red. I didn't spray it but mixed it with the modeling paste I used and rubbed over the stencil.

Yes, I'm playing again with my photo software and doing a polaroid photo.  I love playing with the software...find it lots of fun.

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. It was sunny and warm here in my part of AL so hubby and I worked in the yard....very hard. We cleaned out and re-mulched a bed, went to a couple of plant nurseries, potted some plants, and just had a good time. It wasn't so fun when we finished and I realized how tired I was. :-)

It's time for the CAS271 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. This week we are to case a card from a past DT CAS member and that person is Angela Maine aka Arizona Maine. What a beautiful gallery. Believe me, I could case all her cards. This is the card I chose to case.

You can see the changes I made while keeping it fairly close to hers.
