I was looking at the current challenge over at A Day for Daisies where they want us to CASE one of the cards from the DT. I browsed through my ADFD images and found this sweet image of birds on a branch and knew immediately which one I wanted to CASE. I've put that one first and then mine right below it. I love the pink and blue color combo.
I based my card on the sketch from Our Daily Bread Designs.
I inadvertently printed the image onto a scrap piece of white CS which was in the paper tray of my printer and then realized as I pulled it out that it was a left over negative piece from a Cheery Lynn die cut. Fortunately, all of the image printed which is all that mattered. I used ProMarkers to color the image while I tried to figure out what I could do with that odd piece. Then it came to me that if I backed the negative with some colored CS and then used a Spellbinders' die to cut the image and some of the negative, I'd have an interesting piece with some delightful texture.
Both the dp and the peach-pink strip were scraps, too, so I dug through the box of scrap ribbon until I found one that would work for this card. Might as well keep it all scraps. :-D I tied the little bow and then sewed a sequin and bead to the front before adhering it to the card.
We're on the downhill side of the weekend and I've been inside the entire time except for a brief trip to the grocery store very early this morning. I love that store's hours in the summer when I can go there at 5:00 in the morning. They're open 25 hours a day. We're going to be in the 100+ degree range for the next 6 days and I hate hot weather! I hibernate inside with the air conditioning running and crafts spread out around me. I'll pay the price for that when the electric bill comes in but it's called survival. :-D Happy Stamping.
