Happy Sunday, peeps! I can say "peeps" today because our Paper Players challenge from Jaydee is about "Feathered Friends"! Check it out:
It's a clean and simple challenge as well, so I took advantage of this nice sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch:!
While I was checking out all the new DSPs from the catalog, this particular pattern in the Delightful Daisy series took my breath away! SO pretty:
I used a section of it as my main panel, added a Powder Pink mat, and diecut a little bird from the Birds and Blooms thinlets. Can you see him down there in the corner, perched on a petal of the daisy?:
My card uses the new thick Very Vanilla cardstock....very nice, it makes such a great base! To create the bird, I took a scrap of watercolor paper, wet it liberally and added some Tranquil Tide ink to the wet paper, then dried it quickly with my heat tool. I love how the darker portion ended up under his eye:
For my "hello", I masked a portion of sentiment from Better Together and stamped it in Smoky Slate on another scrap of watercolor paper and diecut it with the Stitched Shapes smallest circle. Sometimes I struggle with CAS cards but this one flowed together so well, it was a joy! And I just love my birds, so it was a double joy!
I hope you'll play with our challenge this week too! The DT has some fun cards for you to peruse! Check them out:
And speaking of joy, you can't get any better than this:
Nothing like playing in the creek on a hot almost-summer day! Enjoy YOUR day and be blessed!
