I have never been able to figure out what "my style" is when it comes to my cards but the one common element that seems to be on most of them is the use of the color, white. Maybe white signifies my wish for things (life) to be neat, clean and tidy without all those messy details of day to day living. LOL! Any thoughts?
I used white pigment ink on this background panel for the distressing over the embossing and used a touch of tea dye distress ink just on the edges.
All the stamps used are from Hero Arts. The frame was stamped, then the sentiment and bird were added. The bird was colored with copics and then distress inks were added to the frame.
Have been loving all the cards out there using negative space so I pulled out an old corner punch to create a little negative space on this card. (just pretend that you don't see that the bottom right corner punch is not centered lol!)
Then center white oval was cut with a nestability and then embossed with an embossing folder.
Hope your week is going well, I have worked over 20 hours the last two days and I get a day off today so I am going to take my dad out to lunch.
Thanks for stopping by!
