Clothed With Dignity

Hello!  It's time for another Impression-Obsession challenge.  Today's challenge theme is 'Things that fly.' 
Stamps:  Goldfinch 12190CL (Serendipity)
              Hope Set WP990
              Eucalyptus Stem 2  E20751
              Eucalyptus Stem 1  D20752
              Berry Branch E20765
Die:        Scalloped Stitched Circles DIE831-YY

I started with a light green A2 card, and stamped the stems and branch onto it, using my Misti.  I did go over the images with colored pencils to create more highlights and shading.  I brushed some Shabby Shutters ink around where the bird image was going to go.

I stamped the bird image onto Strathmore mixed media card stock, and colored it with colored pencils.  I used a die from the Scalloped Stitched Circles to cut it out, then distressed the edges with the same ink.  I attached it with foam tape for added dimension.  

I stamped the verse from the Hope Set on the front, then stamped parts of the set on the inside and colored it.

I hope you like my card, and were inspired to join our challenge.  You just might win a gift certificate to the IO store!

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate your visits, and your lovely comments.
