Hey, there, and welcome to this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges! This month Lynn is our host and since it’s National Pet Week, today she’s challenging us to use a pet on your card or project.
So, OK, I might be stretching it a bit here—birds can be pets, but maybe not these birds? Oh, well, I wanted to use this MSTN Tweet On You set again so I went for it :) My card started with a Kraft card stock base, then I added Berrylicious card stock layer, stamped with Sheet Music Background and Black Licorice dye ink, popped up on foam mounting tape with a strip of Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with Striped Backgrounds and Black Licorice dye ink tucked up under the edge. I cut the tree and the birds, from MSTN Tweet On You Die-namics from Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper, stamped the coordinating images from MSTN Tweet On You with Black Licorice hybrid ink, and colored them with Copic markers. I popped the tree up on foam, then added the sentiment strip before popping the birdies up on foam as well. The sentiment was stamped on Black Licorice card stock, cut with Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics (I cut both ends with it) with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder.
Another sentiment from the set was stamped on the inside.
And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you, including our April Guest Designer, Vicki Burdick!
