Hello everyone!
First of all I would like to thank all those people that gave me such wonderful comments on my wedding card, they are so appreciated and really made my day! Today I have a card made with one of Shawne's images from Studio313 called Bird on a frail branch. I really enjoyed making this card as it's a little unusual for me to use a verse/quote instead of an image, but I'm starting to like them a lot so I'm sure I will be making more. This one was very easy to work with and once again I am happy with the results.
As you can see I stitched around the verse to give it a lacy feeling, I did get a little too close to the name though so if any of you can't read it, this is by Victor Hugo.
For the birds I colored them softly in prismacolored pencils then added stickles to give a little shine. I added some flowers with more stickles, ribbon and a metal flower charm, and that's it! Hope you like it!
Please stop by Shawne's Challenge blog to join in the fun...and she has an awesome prize for the winner....
