Two into one again, this time for Secret Crafter where the challenge is "we would like to see brads or eyelets or both on your projects" and a new one Everyday Art Challenge. The second one is new to me, I discovered it this morning after Nixe visited my blog and I in turn visited her only to find she has a challenge and this week a brilliant sketch which immediately gave me an idea to re-create something similar to a project I designed for a class recently.
The main image is Hero CL284 stamped twice onto black card to create a larger one using versamark and detail white embossing powder. The little bird is from the same set and repeat stamped with versafine black and embossed with detail clear.
The two circles cut with nesties from black gloss card that has been run through the cuttlebug using bird call folder, then distressed with fine sandpaper. The greeting is a skinny stamp from Stamps by Judith (stampaddicts). Finally I added some little spotty brads and gingham ribbon.
