Unity Friends with Flair

Once again, I'm delighted to be playing along with Unity Friends with Flair.  It's been quite a day here, rather eventful, running errands and finding out a neighbour on my street was robbed just outside her home (thankfully, she is ok), and now it's time to watch the Royal Wedding!

Today, my card is a little different - I tried something new, i.e, stamping on canvas. 


On a piece of canvas measuring 3"x4.25", I stamped the branch and rose image (Itty Bitty WP Beauty) all around the edges. Next, I stamped the Bird on a branch image from KOM April 2011 in the centre and added some i-rock blings on the eye of the bird and several other spots on the branch.  Then I added some Distress Stain (Antique Linen) and Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass) on the canvas.  To add some definition to the canvas layer, I distressed the canvas edges with Walnut Stain.

The background paper is actually a Christmas paper (Webster's Pages, Sweet Season) - I love the colour & pattern.  I did some piercing around the paper and sewed around it using Baker's Twine and tied a little bow on one corner.  To finish off the card, I added a pink felt flower (cut using a Sizzix die) and leaves.

Here's a closer look at the flower corner:


I can't wait to see what everyone else has created.  Thank you for visiting.  I hope you'll have a wonderful day!

Hi Kary!!!

Yihoe!! Here I am, finally! I love this new style of your card, so pretty colors!! That bird stamp is so cute! You could also enter it for the Bird Challenge! ;-) Fun that we both decided to make a card with a bird, ha ha! I love that flower on your card!! And also the black border on the canvas, love it! You can distress more often, if you ask me, looks great!!
Wishing you a wonderful evening & a fabulous time in Hanoi - I loved it there 1,5 year ago, lots to see! Were you there before? How much time will you have? If you have time, you should definitely make a trip to the Ha Long Bay, that area is truly gorgeous!!!
Hugs, Wendy

This is darling, Kary!! That stamp works so well with the papers you chose. I can't believe you stitched that twine all the way around. The felt flower is the perfect colour for the greens! Love it.
