No new sheets of cardstock were harmed... the making of this card (and the ones that will follow in the next few days too). The good thing about my scrap bag is that I also put 1/2 sheets of cardstock in there too, so I really DON'T need to start a new sheet in order to create a card. The other good thing is that it challenges me to use colour combinations I wouldn't have thought made sense...turns out they do - LOL!

This card isn't exactly from a half sheet of cardstock - it's slightly smaller. The finished size of the card is 3 1/4 X 5 1/4 - Not exactly standard, but fun!!!

The scraps of paper are from the Cottage Wall DSP pack. I stamped the image using the direct to rubber technique (using markers to colour directly on the stamp) and stamped the image on Whisper White Cardstock. I used my sponge daubers to add some Old Olive ink around the outside of the panel and some Rich Razzlebery ink to sort of colour in the bird. The image was matted on Pale Plum Cardstock and adhered to the front of the card. The finishing touch was a length of knotted Old Olive Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.

What do you think?
