Just a little "Note" for DigiStamps4Joy
It's time for some mid-challenge inspiration at DigiStamps4Joy. The current challenge, hosted by Sharon, is "add wings". I love birds, so this was a fun one for me!
I used the digi called, "Chirp" on this card. I believe he is a European robin, but I wanted him to be a bluebird. So he is.
I used a technique I've been wanting to try, applying Tim Holtz Distress inks with a makeup sponge directly to the digi image. Then, I fussy cut around it. I also used Distress inks and a sponge on a diecut circle behind the digi, and cut a slightly larger circle behind the inked one. I was going for a shabby chic look, so everything was sanded heavily and/or inked.
Papers are by My Mind's Eye. The feathers and the fabric covered button are from Pinque Peacock. The sentiment stamp is from Unity Stamp Company.
