Eyes Wide Open


Happy Tuesday to you!!!!!!!!!  I hope your week is off to a good start.  Isn't this a fun card?  Well, I think so.

Let's start with the background.  I pulled a piece I'd done with my new Brushos shortly after Christmas.  I trimmed it down to 4 3/8" x 5 7/8".   I stamped the music with Archival Ink jet black.  I sponged on some white paint in the area I wanted to stamp the quote which lightened that area up.  Since Brushos react with anything wet the color bled through but I wanted it to and everything blended together wonderfully.  The quote, Dream with your eyes wide open, (now available mounted on cling) is stamped with Archival Ink jet black and embossed with clear powder. I stamped the medium sized dotted harlequin border along the top with Archival Ink jet black.  There are 2 pieces of washi tape where I knew the bird was going and I stamped the smallest dotted harlequin border (found in the mini images set).  Around the edges is sponged Archival Ink emerald green and jet black.  I also sponged some emerald green in places through a piece of sequin waste.  

The bird is the Quietfire Design Cut File, Chickadee, available in the Silhouette Design Store. **News Flash - There is a big sale going on in the Silhouette Design Store - Everything 50% off thru March 17th**  I cut it from black cardstock and white cardstock (because I wasn't really sure what color I wanted) and then I cut just a silhouette of the bird from a piece of background paper located in "the box".  Over the silhouette I stamped a text image with white paint.  I layered on the black bird and then also used the white bird to create a highlight.  The bird is attached to the card with foam mounting tape.
