Backyard Basics CCMC296

Today is Thursday which means it's Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Day;  today we have a fun color challenge of Summer Starfruit, Smokey Slate and Pacific Point. 

The flowers were stamped in Black StazOn and colored with Summer Starfruit and a Blender Pen.  The stems were colored with a blend of Summer Starfruit and Pacific Point which made a nice tone of green.  The bird was colored with Pacific Point and a Blender Pen.  These were then cut out with the matching Backyard Basics Framelits.  Smoky Slate polka dot DSP was used for the background inside the On Film framelit.

The background behind the On Film framelit is White Shimmer Paper.  I misted it heavily with water then randomly stamped it with Summer Starfruit and a small splatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set.  When finished I blotted it then put in between paper towels and under a heavy pile of cardstock packages to keep it from warping and to dry overnight.  I like the soft mottled look that evolved.

The smallest Basic Pearls were applied and a double bow of Silver Baker's Twine was added with Glue Dots to finish the card.

Stamps:  Backyard Basics, Trust God, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks:  Black StazOn, Pacific Point, Summer Starfruit
Paper:  Shimmer White, Summer Starfruit, Pacific Point cardstocks.  Smoky Slate Polka Dot Print from the Neutrals Designer Paper Stack.
Accessories:  Silver Baker's Twine, Basic Pearls
Tools:  Big Shot, On Film Framelits, Backyard Basics Framelits (bird, flower), Decorative Label Punch, Water Mister, Blender Pens.

Margaret, your really created a beautiful card. I love how you used the On Film Framelit and made a nature card! Just goes to show how that frame lit set can be used in so many ways! I can't wait till the bluebirds appear in my yard.

Such a great way to use Barnyard Basics with the On Film Die, clever!

My goodness, so pretty! Love your watercoloring on the flowers and the bird. What a fun idea you used for the background with the Shimmery White paper! I will have to try that!
