Spooky Birds

Are the "Goblins" around you getting restless??? Thankfully, the littlest goblin at my house has done her "trick or treating" last weekend at the Toledo Zoo!

We have been having some spectacular sunrises and sunsets around here!  They have provided some WONDERFUL inspiration for me!

Like this:
The sky was created by adhering a die cut circle on top of my image with a TEMPORARY adhesive.  I then sponged ink using Ranger's Ink Blending tool around the circle and the edges of the image.  Then I used a diecut scalloped circle to make the clouds (some before and some after the die cut circle was removed.

The technique for the bow is one that I have not used in YEARS!!  I thought it was perfect for this card, though--a little feathery!  It is called "frayed ribbon".  I first became familiar with this technique with the "Technique Lovers Challenge #106".  The originator, Chris Smith, of this has a step by step of this on SplitCoastStampers  and her blog "From My Ink Pad to Yours".

  • Stamp: Birds in Trees SKU:589 by Rubbernecker Stamp Co.;
  • Ink: StazOn Jet Black; Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Broken China, Chipped Sapphire; Dusty Concord, and Milled Lavender; 
  • Paper: white, light plum, and black cardstock
  • Accessories: Ribbon (May Arts Ribbon), Spellbinders dies for masks; Ink Blending Tool, Chipboard Stickers (American Crafts);

Thank you for stopping to look, today!  I hope the little goblins in your area are appeased with candy! ;)
