Hints of Spring, Vol. 3 – Mixed Media Card Challenge

Hi there, today I´m sharing yet another card I created for this months Mixed Media Card Challenge.

I am totally in love with the „Save the Date“ collection by Teresa Collins and even though this paper is not quite shouting spring, I just had to use it :). I love the b&w stripes!! To add a little spring feeling, I´ve used bright and happy colours to go with the b&w background. Here are some detail photos of how I made the card:

I took several Distress Stains colours and wiped them onto a piece of white cardstock and let the layer dry properly.

Next I stamped a birdie (Stamp by Hero Arts) with a black dye ink (also by Hero Arts) over the coloured area. While I was at it, I made two – never know when you will need a second birdie for something :). After that I fussy cut them.

I then glued the birdie on it´s place and added some wood veneer arrows to go with it. Also a green rhinestone as an eye :). I then covered the arrows with glitter glue and then cut a little strip of coloured paper and hand wrote the sentiment on it. That´s it!

Oh, and of course I had to add some colour splatters here and there, you know me ;-). This time with pink Glimmer Glaze. And I also outlined the birdie image with a black pen to make it stand out more.

So now it´s your turn – there is still plenty of time to play along, so I hope to see you at MMCC!!!

  1. LOOOVE the stickles arrows……my prob is I’m too impatient & they take so long to dry!!!! Gorgeous card, brill sentiment & the stripes remind me of our magpies……so appropriate for a birdy card!!!!!
