This week over on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog our theme is "A Tweet and a Flutter". We want to see your cards that feature either a bird or a butterfly, they can either be the main focus of your card, or be just part of the main image...or even an embellishment or the background papers...the choice is yours.
I made a card using the Tim Holtz Alterables birdcage die on my card, together with some of the gorgeous My Minds Eye Union Square papers available HERE from Dies to Die For. The birdcage was cut from the chipboard at the back of a 6x6 paper pad and has been inked with a Versa Color Platinum inkpad with clear embossing power over. I did this a few time to make the cage shiny. I also added some jewel drops that I got HERE and a couple of Tim Holtz Adage Tickets.
When Georgia was the card, she fell in love with the birdcage, so I made her this tag to add to her school book bag. I used all the same techniques but used black ink and black embossing powders. The background is created using a Tim Holtz Textures folder with Vintage Photo Distress Ink rubbed over it. I also added a few Prima roses and this time added purple heart gems to the birdcage...available HERE.
The card and tag are not my usual style, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself while making them.
