Congrats - Graduation Card


I love how this card came out!!!  The leafy background is Grunge Paste (PaperArtsy) through a stencil (The Crafter's Workshop).  The pasting was actually done a long time ago while doing some other pasting and then it went into the "use this one day" pile.  I trimmed the piece to the size I wanted and sprayed it with Distress Spray Stains (Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron).  Once dry I highlighted the texture with Treasure Gold Green Amber.  The bird (Tim Holtz) was stamped onto Mixed Media Paper, cut out using the matching die and colored with Distress and a Water Brush. There is also a little bit of white gel pen used on the wings.  Congrats is cut with an A Way With Words die (Elizabeth Craft Designs).  The scripture (Our Daily Bread Designs) is stamped with Archival Ink Jet Black and die cut with a Stitched Oval die (Elizabeth Craft Designs).
