Find A Song

Hello! Hope your week has begun with a boost of positive energy! Mondays can be tough, I know.

This is a card most of you have already seen in other places I've posted it. Since I'm starting a new Online Card Class called Clear & Sheer, I wanted to put this in the pre-class Gallery.

To create this card, I first heat embossed the birds, tree branch and sentiment in VersaFine Black ink. Then, after it cooled, I sponged on Mustard Seed, Orange Marmalade and Festive Berries Distress Inks by Tim Holtz. I spent a lot of time blending the inks so there isn't any clear line between the colors. That takes a lot of patience, but it's worth it. That was the #1 lesson I learned when sponging these inks together.

That was basically it! I just lined the layer with black cardstock, then put it on a yellow cardstock base called Lemon Drop by Gina K Designs. (I'd link this to her site, but it's currently not working.)

Thank you for stopping by today! I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again soon ~
