Well not really for Paulette but I am posting it for Paulette. Get it? LOL!
When I was home for Easter Amy and I made a quick visit (well as quick as we could be. LOL) to see Paulette and Ria at "The Barn". I picked up these cute bird chipboard pieces and was thinking what am I going to use them for but they are sooo cute how can I pass them up? Paulette suggested using them on cards. Of course the price was right so why not?
Anyway, last night I needed a little "me" time (although I should have been getting ready for class Thursday night) so I decided to play with one of the chipboard birds and cover it with pattern paper. My neighbor went into the hospital on the weekend so I wanted to make her a card to let her know I was thinking of her.
It has been a while since I have done much stamping so I was feeling a little out of practice. I think it is a little plain but I am going to leave it as is so I can get it to her asap.
This is another one I did last night. The owl was also from the chipboard pieces. I traced it onto the back of my patterned paper and once I had it cut out I decided not to mount it on the chipboard to have that for something else. Instead I put it on a piece of cardstock and cut around it again. I then sponged it with Tempting Turquoise ink.
I think the owl needs eyes but I haven't found anything to use for them. I think I want something dark to show up. Any ideas?
