Anything With Wings

I am hosting the challenge this week at The Mod Squad Challenge blog. Be sure to check it out. There are 2 sponsors with prizes of stamps...not digi but real stamps! The theme is "Anything With Wings". Here is the card I made using stamps from  Designs by Ryn

I made the background on Stampinback coated paper, added Brushos and spritzed with water. I then stamped the Sideways Hibisus and Flying Humming Bird 2 with Versafine Onyx ink (water proof). I removed some color from the bird and flower using bleach and a Q-tip. Coloring was done with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

Using Stazon Jet Black ink (for non-porus surfaces) I stamped on some acetate from packaging I saved. Once dry I cut it out and colored with Stickles Diamond. I used rolled up glue dots to adhere over the bird. It looks amazing in person, hard to see in photo.

It's Fall!

I am hosting the challenge this week at StampTV. The theme is fall. Well, fall starts this week!

Here is the card I made to celebrate fall:

This layout is pretty versatile. You can use the same layers and stamp leaves instead of acorns, or pumpkins. I embossed the back panel with the woven from We R Memory Keepers Next Level embossing folder. I stamped tone on tone for the leaves then die cut.

Cardstock is GKD Pure Luxury
The sentiment is from  GKD "Heartfelt"
The acorns are from GKD So Grateful
