Sent with Love

ECD bagde

Hey friends.  I have been feeling like I’ve been in a rut lately…so to help get out of it, I have been going back to the basics.  The little art activities that I did in the beginning that made me fall in love with card making.  So today, I pulled out some alcohol inks and just messed around with color.  I have always been a lover of color, and just some time with just a little yupo paper and alcohol ink helped lift my spirits.  The little art project came out so nicely, I just had to turn it into a card.

Step 2- Trim up some lavender paper from the Thinking About Polinesia paper pack trimmed to 6×6.

Step 4- Adhere the lavender paper to the card frame using 6mm Double Sided Adhesive.  Adhere the yupo paper to the card, leaving a small gap in the small opening.

Step 6- Color the image in with alcohol markers.  I used copics.

Step 7- Fussy cut out the image.

Step 8- Adhere the owl into the opening, tucking the bottom in slightly to the opening.
