Bird on a Wire
My thirty minute ride to work is my quiet, contemplation time and I often enjoy seeing the birds on the wire. Especially the morning dove couples, it makes me have a happy heard when I see two together. On the other hand, I find myself wondering what happened to the mate when I see the solitary dove on a wire and feel a tiny bit saddened at its loneliness.
Today marks the first day of Tiffany Doodle's 7 on the 7th Challenge for August-use kraft paper! I was so inspired by this card I had to try out a version of my own. I printed the Common Yellowthroat Bird Image onto white paper, masked an area and misted his belly, then fussy cut him and adhered him to a kraft panel. The kraft was stamped with a sentiment and then used black floss to resemble a wire.
Today also marks my last day as a Tiffany Doodle's design team member. Tiffany's images are spectacular, and so easy to work with to acheive a variety of styles or with techniques. Thank you Tiffany, for being a great leader and offering up such fantastic images for card makers! I truly had a blast being on your team!
