Well it looks like we are going to get some more snow today and followed by rain which will make for a another messy day tomorrow to clean up . Thought I'd share a card I started yesterday and finished off today . I love this image which I found on the internet and printed off sorry but I can't remember which site but I do believe it maybe from Graphic Fairy. I purchased a new stencil last week Tim Holtz's Gothic so I used it to make the background. First I went over all the stencil with Victorian Velvet DI then I wanted to try the recipe for homemade paste following Pamellia Johnson's recipe which you can find Here I love it it's goes on so smooth . After the paste was dry I sponged some more Victorian Velvet DI over it to give it more color. I stamped SU French script in Versafine Smokey Grey over the bottom half . The little bird cage is Memory box and cut out of cardboard then painted with Pewter Distress Paint when dry I covered with clear Crackled paint and sponge with Pumice Stone when dry . The little birds are a MB die. The flowers were handmade from SB rose creation die and SB Blossom 4 die Leaves are SB Foliage die and TH's Pinecone die .One of my newest dies is TH's Vintage Lace which I used to separate between the top and bottom half of the card . I am really happy with the final result.
