Greetings once again from a lovely warm Antipodean Island - ahh I do love late spring!!
Once again I am featuring a card using digi images from Priscillastyles - this time the Flying Birds set, which has six images - three of the birds and three of the beaded flowers. I used the double image of the both birds and the flowers.
The flowers were printed onto a piece of patterned vellum and gold heat embossed, which gave a lovely deep background. This I matted onto cream card stock and then a very deep brown.
I put this aside and coloured the bird images with chalks and cut them out.
I was then able to match the pink with some card, and made my background panel with that, again using the dark brown to mat it onto. I toyed with embossing it, but as the main image was so 'busy' I kept it simple.
When I did the final assembly of the card, I added some decorative strands of (?) plastic that I sourced from a local business - it is generally used for window dressing , and this business is retailing it for home, think Christmas, decorations. The beauty of it is that it reflects the colours that it is against, so is very versatile!
I enjoyed making this card - and what I had planned happened, which is quite a change, and here is the final result, complimented by the addition of some Kaiser pearls.
