June Challenge at Triple B


Hello Friends!

Have you checkout our new challenge blog called TRIPLE B?
It's all about using any of your stash but your project must have at least a BIRD, a BUTTERFLY or BLOOMS (flowers) visible on it.  Hence the title Triple B.

I'm your host for June and here's the inspiration board I have created for you ...

Don't you just love roses?  Any color rose is beautiful to me!

So, that was the basis of today's creation.  

To create my background panel, I first inked up the Lisa Horton 3D embossing folder using the TH ink then ran it through my machine.  Then I matted it with black card stock.  The lacy rectangle panel was die cut from white card stock using one of the dies in the Sue Wilson set.

I die cut the 'bird on a branch' four times.  Coloring one then glued them all together to create dimension.  Add my sentiment and a couple Nuvo drops ... VIOLA, Card Complete.

Product used: 

Lisa Horton 3D 'Roses' embossing folder

Sue Wilson 'Australian' background die set (CED8101)

 Impression Obsession 'Bird on a Branch' (DIE161)
Creative Expressions ' Everyday' Wordies (CEW002)
Tim Holtz 'Kitsch Flamingo' Distress Oxide Ink
