Here's another card that's waiting for a sentiment - though I may just send it without as a simple "hello" card. The light blue patterned paper is from the paper swap I've mentioned frequently in recent posts. It is a "Shine Design" from HOTP. I've been experimenting with embossing various patterned papers, so I ran this piece through an embossing folder. I love the additional texture!
The focal was created in a similar way to what I showed yesterday - dimensional paint and flocking with a stencil. In this case, I started with a piece of blue glimmer paper that I had cut and embossed with a Spellbinder's die. I used blue paint for the bird and green for the rest of it. After removing (and cleaning) the stencil, I added white fun flock. I then decided to use a touch of red Stickles for the berries. After it dried, I matted it on a piece of white glimmer paper that was cut and embossed with another Spellbinder's die from the same set. (This is one of my favorite die sets - Resplendent Rectangles - one of their Majestic Elements series).
