Bird on a Branch
I worked with Tim Holtz' Urban Tapestry stamp set for the Fond Memories workshop. This is the card I created. The background color was created with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists Riptide & Tattered Leather. The bird & branch, flowers & spatters are all stamped with StazOn Timber Brown ink. The verse is from Cornish Heritage Farms Motivational Centers set. I matted it with Bazzill Java, added some brown twine and mounted it on a kraft card which was stamped with the spatter stamp around the edges.
In the process of working with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists for that project, I created numerous other backgrounds. Here's another card I created with the same stamps from Urban Tapestry only a totally different background. I used these Glimmer Mists: Hydrangea, Lemon Meringue, Garden Fairy, Lime Twist. The flowers were stamped with various Distress Inks. The branch with the bird and the verse (CHF Scripture Essentials I) are stamped using StazOn Timber Brown.
Neither of these photos really show the beauty of the Glimmer mist.
Enjoy a glorious day!
