All this month over at Eileen Hull Designs we are sharing our projects created incorporating Birds in them. I love the Wreath and Snowflake Die and it's not resticted by it's Christmas theme, after all Cardinals are not just here for one Season!
I started by covering a Pocket Notebook in canvas, and gave it a quick coat of white gesso for tooth.
Then I added a selection of stamps from Eileens releases with Maker Forte, from the Snail Mail Inspiration and Button Cards and More sets using Black Versafine ink to create a random background. Love these stamps and they live on my desk.
I die cut the wreath pieces out of several different shades of the gorgeous Sizzix cardstock. Their colour schemes are always so pretty.
I built up the wreath and added the cardinal and a few stars, then using Bundled Sage Distress ink, I added shading around the edges.
There are three signatures created from tea dyed paper and are plain so I can make notes in the journal. The inside covers are lined with a gorgeous minty green shade again from the Sizzix cardstock pack, and of course there has to be lace and muslin for a shabby look!
