Anyway, I got a chance to participate in the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #128...I miss these sketches when I don't get a chance to do them! This one was a tougher one, but I always love a challenge, so I gave it a try! I needed a wedding card, so I pulled out the Anniversary Birds set from Verve Stamps. The couples wedding colors (as gleaned from their invitations) is a teal color. So I found a teal based patterned paper from my Sunshine Pad and found that Taken with Teal was my closest (not exact) match. Each bird was stamped in Taken with Teal...funny sidebar, I cannot find one of the birds for the life of me! That is the only problem I have with clear stamps, I put them down and then they get stuck to something else. So I am hoping that it turns up soon!...and then I added some silver wire to the birds for tails and legs. They were mounted on a circle that I outlined with a rhinestone circle.
The ribbon is some that I picked up in the $1 aisle (although they were like $2.50 instead) at JoAnn's around Halloween time. I glued a heart cardstock to the back of some of the ribbon and cut out the ribbon around it to add my heart about the birds. I liked how that helped tie the ribbon into the card a little better.
Here's to hoping I can get some quality stamping time in the weekend...in other words, the husband doesn't have to work too much!! Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
