For the Birds!

Hello, Hello! 

Today's card is CAS, but with what I would consider a mixed media kind of style.  I was inspired by a Technique Junkie fan, Karen Dunbrook, who does wonders with distress inks for backgrounds.
I used one of the March new release stamps, 'Fly',  which you can get at a 10% discount using the code TJ10LeeAnn. 

The image panel is a a piece of water color paper.  Distress inks were used; I put the colors down on my craft mat, spritzed them with water, then picked up the color I desired with a piece of acetate and smooshed it onto the paper.  I repeated this multiple times, layering the colors til I got the desired look. 
Once dry, the image was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  I added a stitched edge to the left side of the panel to give it a more finished look.  A strip of black paper was added to the right edge to make the colors pop and then the panel was popped up on the card base using a piece of craft foam.  Sequins add just enough sparkle. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
