Hi everyone I'm here with my first inspiration post for Live & Love Crafts & wow I am sooooo nervous. As you know the theme this week is Fran-Tage............yeah I'm sure the girls hated this theme lol. Yeah right I'm sure I heard screams of excitement lol......... Now this was quite a rush card as I should have been posting Saturday but Alyce asked if I would swap with her yesterday.
Anyhoo's I have used the uber gorgeous new Stempelglede stamps that Sandy has just added to her store recently............ OMG I sooooooooo love these, I want them all!!
The image is from Stempelglede's stamp set called 'Vintage Garden', sooooo pretty!!
Now its my first time colouring a bird so please be kind lol. I have triple embossed with UTEE powder, cracked it in places.........I dont put mine in the freezer as I've found sometimes pieces can pop out when you crack it & it works just as well even if you dont freeze it ;0)
I've also stamped a Postcard mark with a Magnolia stamp.
The gorgeous papers are Pion Studio Of Memories, I love these with the frames as they are perfect for decorating inside of the card. I also stamped the inside of the frame with Stempelglede's 'Just A Note', which is a gorgeous set of sentiment stamps. I've also added dies to the inside, well do you really think I would only use 1 die lol.
Using the same 'Just A Note' stamp set I also made a tag & added shabby seam binding to it. The tag reads 'I Treasure Your Friendship', isn't it gorgeous!!
The small tag I cut from Pion 'Vintage Garden - Tags' 12x12 sheet. I distressed the edges, inked them & added a charm. I also used a small postage rubber stamp & stamped a postage mark onto it ;0)
I coloured the image with copics but didnt write down the colours sorry, TBH my mojo was not working when I was colouring & after originally trying with other mediums I then went sit in bed, put on Homefront with Jason Statham & pulled out my copics...........
Many of you have said you cant watch tv & colour, well I only watch things I've seen at least twice lol, & all Jason Statham movies I've seen twice, the good ones anyway lol.
I've added Shabby Blue Fran-Tage to the wooden bird cage & to the corners of the box. The metal corner I covered with Shabby White Fran-Tage. Also you cannot see it very well but I also stamped the corners of the bottom paper with a stamp from 'Vintage Garden' stamp set as well. Think you can just see the brown ink on the top left hand corner/side lol.

Huge squishy hugs
