Hi friends! This card is my submission for episode #167 of Craft Roulette! Here were the parameters:
Using the Sizzix Bird Scene Thinlits die set designed by Jenna Rushforth and the Sizzix Funky Floral #1 Thinlits die set designed by Tim Holtz, I die-cut a bird and a bunch of flowers in farmer’s market colours to fit the theme of the challenge. Before assembling the flowers, I used Distress Oxides/Inks on the edges of the flowers and leaves to add some more colour/interest. I used the following Distress Oxides/Inks:
- Ground Espresso
- Vintage Photo
- Black Soot
- Frayed Burlap
- Mowed Lawn
- Faded Jeans
- Spiced Marmalade
- Candied Apple
After assembling all the bird and flowers, I die-cut a thank you sentiment from the Sizzix Celebration Words: Script Thinlits Dies designed by Tim Holtz.
Once ready, I attached my card front onto a black cardstock panel which was then attached to A2 card base.
I had a lot of fun putting this card together. Whenever I do a card with no colouring and little to no stamping, it reminds how much die-cutting and paper piecing can be!
Thanks for reading. Catch ya next time!
