Today's card, got a start late last night. After going to bed for the night, suddenly, an idea popped into my head, Funny how that happens, as I didn't think that I was thinking about a card, but it did. I kept thinking about a twist on the challenge that I had seen at JUGS and it would not go away. You have all had this happen to you....right? I am not the only one who gets up after midnight, and makes a card.....right? So go along with me here when I show you what I did.
The trend for this challenge is called Spotlighting, and my good friend, Nancy is the host. What I thought I would do is to combine two different techniques on this one. The spotlighting and inlay die cuts.
I stamped this bird image from Stampendous, called Cling Snow Bird and then used a die from PaperTrey Ink called Star Scribble. I thought it would be fun to use a die that was different than a circle or oval for the spotlight. I used a layer of copper foil paper under the white and it all when on a base of kraft paper. I cut several stars out of the same foil and used them around the die cut. The Hello is also cut from the same foil paper. It really sparkles.
Here is a different angle to show you all of the shine. I think I was successful in getting my idea onto paper.
I am entering this card in the Challenge at Just Us Girls #347 Trend Week
I know this bird is more of a winter scene and we are having a great start of summer weather this year. I colored him with copic markers and he looks like the birds that feed right outside my craft room window.
Thanks for stopping in today. I hope you enjoy what I have done, and in some way, I have inspired you to join in this challenge. Thanks for you comments, and I do love them.
