Sending You Hugs

 Hello Again Crafty Friends!

My project today features unique products from the Little Birdie Crafts company.  I have a mixed media card using their adorable Woodland Stories Embellishments pack.

To start, I took a piece of the wood grain paper from the Texture Brew paper pack.  I knew I wanted to do a layered and grunged up look so I took the wood grain paper and stamped on it in black ink using the Whimsical Garden stamp.  Then I added some black in to the edges to give it a worn look.

I hunted through the enormous pack of embellishments - they are all so gorgeous it's hard to pick only a few!  They have this beautiful glittery accents on all the pieces and the little birds are so darn cute!  Once I picked my tag to start, I started playing with making a scene that I liked, incorporating flowers and birds to go along with the colors I was trying to use in my project.

I used a piece of white paper to stamp the sentiments from the Thinking Of You stamp set.  I did the top portion in black and the "hugs" portion in heat embossed copper.  I wanted the sentiment to really stand out.

I layered all my pieces together and wanted the orange color to shine through so I cut a feather using the Thin Cut Metal Dies.  I darkened it up a little using a green ink and a bit of the black.  I also added some of the banners from the pack of embellishments so that I could spread my design out across my cardfront.

After adhering everything down, I absolutely needed a little bling to draw the eye.  I chose to use the Pearl Drops in Lemon Whip to add some yellow tones to my card.

I really loved how this turned out and I'm proud to be stepping out of my comfort zone and doing mixed media.  I enjoy the limitless possibilities of using many different kinds of media to make my idea come to life.

I hope I've inspired you to try something new and that you enjoy reading about my process. Have a great day!
