Vacation is a wonderful thing - I can create in the middle of the day! I saw this card and wanted to make a version of it for my June Stamp Camps. This is what I ended up with (so far - not sure I'm done yet):
I thought about making the bird's beak black, but failed in the execution. I tried about 7 different ways to fake the scallop square (a die I do not own), and I ended up scrapping the whole idea and just using this corner punch. BUT, I have a little secret: (shhhh - don't tell anyone) Those punched corners are separate pieces that I stuck on after-the-fact. Yep! Three of my six failed attempts were mucking with that corner punch and the accompanying edge punch. I ended up layering the Olive onto a Black piece, then I cut out the punched corners from a separate piece of black card stock and just lined them up in the corners of the layered piece. Soooo much easier. I may make another one and remember to take a picture of what I did. (I really do need to fire the photographer...)
Other changes in my version: I changed the orientation from landscape to portrait, colored in the leaves with a blender pen and Old Olive ink, and left off the sentiment. I may go back and add a sentiment later ... maybe.
Lessee, what else is going on ... not much. I've been working on cards for the market - you know: to sell. I hope to take some pics and show you some of those later this week.
Thanks for stopping by!
