Birthday Card



Here's that birthday card I mentioned I would be making using Tim's new technique. I have one picture tilted so you can see the Perfect Pearls in the background. The bird is a grungeboard shape coated with Crackle paints... after it was dry I added some ink to the belly/chest area. Created the circle tag and hung it from the bird by making a hole in the beak and tieing on the tag with a metallic thread. The for the flower I sponged Distress Inks on white cardstock and punched out the flowers. I was only going to add a couple but then just kept going and going but I quite like. I also used a punched flower and a sticky-back pearl for th eye. White "stitching" was done with the inkssential pen. "Happy Birthday" is an old DOTS stamp and all others are Tim Holtz stamps.

Wanda -

What a really super card. It's just beautiful. I know we tend to make tags and things with Tim's techniques, but it really translates wonderfully to a card. You have done a fantastic job!
