I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Flourishes and Swirls

Come and Get it Challenges this week has a flourishes and swirl challenge.

It was the digital image by Arty Pants Digital stamps that I used for the background that inspired my card. I love the music pattern with it’s swirls and flourishes. I colored the image with a couple of colors of Distress Inks to bring out the pattern. Next I added a couple of flourishes, a bird, and bird cage all cut from Tim Holtz die cutters. The bird cage was embossed with several layers of metallic embossing powder to give it a metallic look.  

The flower I added was not quite the right color so I coloured it with Distress Inks and added a center bling to tie in the color. A few black pieces of bling completed the card.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look at my card. I hope you will join us at Come and Get it the week . If you need some inspiration check out the beautiful creations of the other members of the design team.
