Flashback Time!


Today is Flashback time where we share a project using designs from the past.  I chose Birds In Spring.  I used the Outline image but it comes in color too.


Outline and Color

PROMO Birds in Spring Outlines



Details:  My card is 6” x 6”. The card base is made from Neenah Card Stock 80#.  If you never worked with Neenah paper you are missing out on a great product and so reasonably priced in the M5D Store

The filigree mat is from the Silhouette Store.  What I did was size it to fit on the pink mat and layered the image on the filigree mat.  Then I used the print and cut feature.  I colored the flowers on the image using Copic markers (RV04 & RV06).  The leaves and birds were colored using Promarkers (Olive Green, Pear Green, Pastel Blue, Azure, True Blue, Canary Yellow, Peach, and the Blending marker). 

I used papers from my stash for the flowers, leaves, and pink mat.  The flowers were punched from the Retro flower punch in three sizes.  The butterflies were punched using a Martha Stewart punch. Beads and Rhinestones are from my stash.  Then I added clear Wink of Stella glitter brush to the birds, flowers, leaves, & the tree branch on the image.  Everything is held together with the Best Glue Ever (name of glue).  I accidently found this glue online and just had to try it.  I love it because if you get glue where it shouldn’t be you just rub it away and its NON-TOXIC!

I hope you get a chance to go over to the M5D Blog to see all the other awesome creations. Thank you for taking the time to stop in on my blog.

Have a wonderful day!  Fran
