Birdie in Print

Monday, August 27, 2012

 

Happy Monday everyone! I've got a new card for ya today!

Hero Arts recently sent me some publication incentive goodies in the mail. I really, really, really love their Newsprint Bird stamp.

As soon as I opened the package, I whipped up this card. I'm linking this up to the Moxie Fab World's - Movement Challenge.

Let me explain how "movement" is included in the design of my card.  First, the birdie is the focal point. The newsprint on the body of the bird draws your eye their first. Then your eye is drawn upward to the crisp white border design on top of the card.

Then if you look right, you will notice the colorful pattern background. Going down to the right, there is a pretty bloom. As your eye keeps going left, you then notice the sentiment.

Well, that's it for me today! It's the first day of school and I'm off to fix Rachel some yummy pancakes before she heads out the door to start her junior year of high school. Sigh...they grow up so fast.

And be sure to stay tuned to the blog this week. I received some WONDERFUL HAPPY MAIL. {I can't share the news until Saturday though}. I'm bursting with excitement and really want to share, but I've been sworn to secrecy until then.

Have a Happy Week!

Card Supplies:
Paper & Sentiment: MME - Follow Your Heart: Be Amazing
Stamp: Hero Arts - Newsprint Bird
