It’s Thursday and you know that means it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. We have a fun sketch for you to try this week!
FLIGHT & AIRY DESIGNER PAPER
I think the Flight & Airy DSP is so pretty with the watercolor images of birds, flowers and branches so I let it do ALL the heavy lifting on this card! Only the greeting is stamped!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Boho Blue cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 1-1/2 x 4-1/4 strip of Flight & Airy Pecan Pie grid DSP is added across the front towards the top.
- Next a 2-3/4 x 4 small bird print in Flight & Airy DSP was added to a 2-3/4 x 4 piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock on an angle, then added to the front.
- The 3/4 x 3-1/4 Fresh Freesia watercolor print in Flight & Airy DSP was added over it.
- One of the small birds on a branch and flowers was cut from the DSP and added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Linen Thread was wrapped several times in a loop, then added to the tail of the bird.
- The greeting from Perennial Postage Stamp Set was stamped with Boho Blue Ink on a 1/2 x 2-1/4 piece of Basic White cardstock and added on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Three Rainbow Adhesive Backed Dots were added to the background.
I love the softness of the colors in the DSP and how this turned out! OK, go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary
