so grateful

Happy Saturday everyone!! Hope your day is well so far!! I had a few spare moments while my toddler napped. Pulled some inspiration from a couple places today. To start off Freshly made Sketches and for some colour I went to the Colour Me…! blog.

To get this card started I took a piece of the navy as well as the white paper cause I wasn't to sure which one I was going to use for the card front. But I knew once I inked those dots with the stencil this was the route I wanted to go!! So I taped down the navy card stock taped it down to my work surface then taped the stencil over top. I then took a sponge dauber with the same ink colour as the paper and went over it for that tone on tone look. Once that was done I cut a strip of white cardstock for the sentiment which I also stamped in the navy. Glued both these pieces down to a white card base. I die cut and stamped the feathers 2 with vellum and 2 out of white card stock and stamped again using the same blue for the feathers! I arranged them together then took some white bakers twine and tied them together adhering them with some glue dots.. and just cause took out the wink of stella pen and went over the feathers just for some added glitter. Thats it thats all! Came together much better then I pictured it in my head!! Love it when that happens!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
