Hello, paper crafters and welcome! The "optional twist" for this week's Twisted Thursday challenge at The Outlawz was to create something with the theme "in the good OLD summer time". Our sponsor for this month's challenge is Anne Fenton's Digital Stamps. I chose Anne's Birdhouse with Wild Roses stamp. Since the word "OLD" was stressed in the optional twist, I thought I'd make the birdhouse look somewhat aged.
After printing out my image I colored it using both Spectrum Noir and Copic markers. I added some butterflies from GKD Sending Sunshine stamp set and colored them as well.
In my next step, I cut and embossed a frame in brown card stock using Sue Wilson's Spanish Collection Seville die. To fit my image in the center of this frame, I cut it with a die from Spellbinders 5x7 Matting Basics B and before removing it from the die, I sponged around the edges with Memento Angel Pink ink. This was then adhered to the center of my frame.
For my final step, I prepared my base card in white and added a layer of pink card stock. To this I adhered my framed focal image with dimensionals and my project was complete.
Thanks so much for visiting and come join us in this week's challenge at The Outlawz and show us your awesome creations!
