Blackbird

Blackbird

I made it.  I do not like it.  It was much nicer in my head than it turned out to be in real life (most things are).  Those black border punched strips are too long or something.  Did you watch the Make a Card Monday video on kwernerdesign blog this week?  I tried that effect on my background too.  It didn’t turn out as cute.  I needed some green in there for the color challenge, so I spritzed it with some color wash first.  First time I’ve used that product, I liked it.  Then I used a paint dabber to make the “polka dots.”  They looked like eye balls when I first started.  I used two beautiful Unity stamps and then matted it on orange card stock.  I used some paper glaze to give the bird a glossy finish.  Want a closer look?
