Little Bird by Fliss Goodwin


Hello there, my project for you this week is a card, which is actually the quickest card I’ve made in quite a while although I’m hoping you won’t be able to tell! It’s one of those things that is really easy when you know how as there are not that many steps before you have a finished creation. It’s the materials I’ve used that make the card look that bit more special.

Here’s What You Need: 


Here’s How To:  

·       Cut a piece of thick card slightly smaller than your card blank. Apply dabs of the pink Distress Stains and Antique Linen to the craft sheet, starting with the lightest colour. Place the card over the top and press firmly to pick up the stains. Spray with water to spread the stains and dry with a heat gun. Repeat if necessary.

·       Stamp the bird image roughly in the centre of the left side. In my case serendipity struck as there was a deep pink patch which when I stamped the image, coloured the bird’s breast beautifully – how about that for luck! Add some further colour to the stamped image with the Distress Stains. I used the Tea Dye and Pumice Stone to colour the bird.

·       Swipe the embossing ink around the right hand and bottom sides of the decorated card and emboss with the Aged Bronze Embossing Enamel. Don’t worry if you get specks as these add to the grungy effect. Edge the paper with Vintage Photo Distress ink and add to the card blank.

·       To finish, colour some flowers with the pink Distress Stains, applying colour direct from the bottle with the dabber. Dry carefully with a heat gun and fix them together, adding a button or brad in the centre before attaching to the card.

How easy is that! I hope you like my shabby chic creation and will see you next week for another tutorial.

Have a great weekend.
