I entered it in the red challenge, but it's the first thing I've made in forever (gosh, I think since the crop)... that I need to give it it's own thread. LOL
Close up of the details...
To make this I stamped the bird and swirls, then the red "I think you're amazing". Then I stamped the bird and swirl again and cut out the bird body and added it with mounting tape. I liked the red paper but the edge was brown... so I inked around the whole thing in black and covered the brown some too with black. Inked around the bird paper, and the red paper underneath. Added a brad and a corner thingie.
It's for my husband so I kept it a grungier red and black and used darker metals for the embellishments. I had stickled a bird and it looked cool, but was too glittery for this.
(The bird and statement are from the stamp set my husband bought me today because he was gone all day with a hospital visit and then had catechism class. We're... well I'm insisting... that it be my Valentine's gift. I had him pick up Indiana Jones as his gift. We're so romantic- I know. LOL)
LOVE that Michelle...very cool card. TFS
