MMM Week 46 & CAS-ual Fridays CFC50

Hi to all my blogging friends. I am so happy you chose to stop by to see my new creation for Operation Write Home*. 

Rubber Stamp Tapestry has these incredible new stencils that I have been dying to play with for a few weeks now!  They also have a set of concentric hearts that I just love and used for this card. You can see all of Susan’s new items at Rubber Stamp Tapestry by clicking here! 

Here is a close-up of the detail. I’m sure my stenciling will get better with practice, but I think it turned out ok.  I could not resist doing a Bluebird because I am seeing them all over the neighborhood.

The background technique is done using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and a blending tool. Once finished I used water to create the spots in the ink to make it look more distressed.  The pansy is one I made using one of Operation Write Home’s tutorials that you can see here. I need more practice to make mine as pretty as the ones in the tutorial, but I love making them!

The heart is a Sizzix Sizzlit and is stamped with a Rubber Stamp Tapestry sentiment.  This simple card is then finished with a pretty ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and some purple rhinestones.
