A tag card - 6 x 3

Christine has chosen the theme for us at CD Sunday this week and it is a tag card. There are some wonderful ones to see over on the CD Sunday Challenge Blog so do go and have a look. 

Here is my tag -

I used Vintage Floral Collection CD by Crafter's Companion to make my tag and all the images are from that CD. I just used some lace, ribbon and a few gems, glitter and glaze to finish it. 

I then decided to use my tag on a birthday card for a friend.

Things with Wings

I started with a shaving foam background to stamp the bird onto which I then coloured using Spectrum Noir pencils. I covered the bird with a mask and added some weathered wood distress ink to give a shadow effect. I then masked off  a border and stamped the feather stamp. I used a mixture of scattered straw and spiced marmalade distress ink to add some colour and then the pencils again on the feathers. Once I had stamped the sentiment I matted and layered onto orange and brown card.

I am entering this in the Clarity Stamp Challenge No. 23 - Things with Wings.

Animal Antics

This week is Jenny's turn to choose a theme at CD Sunday and she has chosen Animal Antics for us. If you pop over to the CD Sunday Challenge Blog you will see what all the animals my fellow teamies chose have been getting up to. 

I used two CDs for my card this time. Furry Friends from Joanna Sheen for the main image, which made me smile and Bebunni Floral Collection from Crafter's Companion for the backing paper. I then ran the backing paper through an embossing folder from Crafter's Companion to give a knitted effect. I think it's stocking stitch!

The die framing the image is from Marianne dies, the leaves are Sue Wilson and the flowers are Cheery Lynn.
