Now, here's my card!

I chose to do a fun shaker card, using Flower Soft's Display Globe and Oval Aperture Card.

Feb1 ChickadeeShaker frontThe card is a tri-fold to begin with...the front, the inside flap where the image goes and back. I stamped the Chickadee from You Will Find Refuge in Memento Tuxedo Black, then colored with Copics. Next I went over the entire image with my Versamarker pen and heat embossed with clear embossing powder, then I masked the image and airbrushed the background with my Copic Airbrush System. *embossing the image gives dimension, texture, and just helps it POP!*

Feb1 ChickadeeShaker closeup It's all held together with Scor Tape, Zip Dry glue, and Helmar acid free glue. The patterned paper is called Faith from The Paper Studio, I used 3 separate sheets from this series. The card front edges were colored with a Copic marker to match the image...then the oval cut patterned paper (Spellbinders ovals) was adhered in place. I braided the jute and glued it down with Helmar glue. It still needed "something", I found a Basic Grey brad in my stash and attached it with a glue dot. (you can see I spread the brad anchor and left it...gives a different look!)

Feb1 ChickadeeShaker insideFor the inside, I cut a piece of copy paper with the oval again, and airbrushed, then embossed the Scripture from Sing For Joy.

stamps: you will find refuge, sing for joy
ink: memento tuxedo black, ranger black soot
paper: the paper studio-faith series
other: flower soft display globe & oval aperture card, copics, copic airbrush system,  versamarker, clear embossing powder, spellbinders oval die, scor tape, zip dry glue by beacon, helmar acid free glue, jute, birdseed, basic grey brad

Ok! Are you ready for my clue?!

My secret Scripture words are.... to lay.

 
From here, hop to and be wowed by
Angie Z

Thanks for stopping!

Dear Dawn,

Thank you so very much for giving me/us the gift of learning how to make such wonderful coaster gifts. I think yours are so beautiful!

I love the very top of your blog. It shows two totally different variations of your art. One is a more comical look, and the other so elegant.

You are one talented lady!

His,
Traci S.

Anonymous said...

Oh Dawn,("My little chick-a-dee"),

We have every bird you showed in today's blog living in our own yard. I wish you could be here to see it! You did such an amazing job on every display you made. I love the coaster idea, as you know. The card, with the bubble is just so unique. It is beautiful. It reminds me of looking out of the window and seeing the smaller birds feed right there, on the window-sill feeder.

I love how you thought outside of the box, and created whatever bird you wanted on that specific piece of art!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
