Ink to Paper :: January 2021 Release :: Day 4
It's the last day of Ink to Paper's January release introductions--that means the big day for the items to be available in the shop is tomorrow! We're focusing on bird friends today, introducing Feathered Friends 7, so let's have a look...
This card might be my most favorite that I created this week, and it's funny, because it took a long time to get it just right! I tried all kinds of different variations for the floral branches, scared that once I actually put the whole thing together, it wasn't going to look as good as the way it was arranged before adding adhesive and cutting off the excess bits that hung over the edges of the card. Happily, though, after a few hours of messing with it--I'm not joking--it came together and actually looked better than what I had envisioned!
I chose yellows for this pretty hummingbird friend, and because they are attracted to red, I wanted to make some red florals for this card. I used Springs & Sprays, which we introduced on Day One, and stamped the larger clusters with Pure Poppy ink, while the smaller ones were stamped with Raspberry Fizz.
The sentiment is found with the Feathered Friends Mini Stamp set, and is stamped on a stitched oval from the It's A Sign die collection. I adhered everything but the oval frame with 3-D foam dots to lift them off the page and give the card some extra dimension.
