That's the name of a stamp by Stampin' Up and I love it! I combined it with some beautiful patterned paper from Pink Paislee and another awesome bird stamp from Penny Black.
But I also have to admit that I CASED my card from Ashley Newell's blog. I couldn't help it, her card is just so beautiful! Here is my interpretation.
See that sentiment, that's from Stampin' up, there are a few different "three word" sentiments in the set, pretty neat.
Paper: Notecard (PTI); patterned paper (Pink Paislee: Butterfly Garden)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Tattered Rose & Tea Dye DI; Copic markers
Stamps: Penny Black (Nature's Day); Stampin' Up (Three Little Words)
I inked the bird with the distress inks and I coloured the branch with some copics, fussy cut it out and adhered it to the patterned paper. Not sure if you can see, but I added two rows of zig-zag sewing to the card.
I guess one could say that this was my attempt at Shabby Chic, but that was definitely not my intention, I simply wanted to use this paper with these two stamps. If this was in the hands of a true shabby chic person, (like Ashley and many others I know), I could imagine some lace and rhinestone patterns, and although I can see it in my mind, that's just not me. So, you got the plain version!
I also found a fabulous tip on Ashley's blog HERE about changing a setting on google reader where basically each day when you check your reader you simply press a NEXT button which you will add to your google bar and it takes you through each new post one at a time, with the comments section in that post. When you finish commenting you simply press next and it will go to the next post you have not read in your reader! Love it! So easy now!
Ok, off to check my google reader and comment up a storm!
