Make me Smile


I never seem to have time to make a card just for fun these days. Also I have been hoping to try more, one layer cards, especially closer to the 'C' season to ease postage costs. I need the practice, this is not my comfort zone.
I have had this  cute Lost Coast bird stamp sitting un-inked on my desk for weeks. Okay, so it surfaced from the bottom of a pile while looking for something else and I had intended to use it, but time waits for no man or woman these days.
Its a plain white one layer  card.  I used  stencils to add interest to the background, shading with Tumbled Glass  and and Shabby Shutter distress inks. The images are stamped up with  plain black Stazon.
So last minute me and I have time to enter a couple of challenges --
Tando Creative Challenges --Come Fly with me
Country View Challenges---Stencil It

Thank you for stopping by, the comments you leave are always appreciated.

  8. What a great birdie image, shame on you for not using him sooner! Good luck with the "thinner" Christmas cards as it definitely helps ease the postage pain...
