Blue Bird

Dear Ones~
This may be the last post I make before our trip out West. Maybe I'll be able to post along the way and share some photos - that would be awesome.

Today's card has been made for the Mod Squad Challenge, hosted this week by one of my over-the-top talented besties, Barb Campbell. You MUST go check out her BLOG and see how talented she really is. Her challenge is to do the whitewash technique. To watch a video with this technique visit the Mod Squad Blog - she has a link to a video by Melanie Muenchinger there.

Here's my card:

I LOVE this little bird, and I love the GKD stamp set he came from, Winter Wings. I just think he's so sweet. Here I used kraft card stock to do the whitewash, and I really like that soft light blue with it.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White and Kraft Card Stock
K & Company Pastel Basics Patterned Paper
GKD Winter Wings Stamp Set
GKD White and Ocean Mist Ink
Enamel Accents
Seam Binder Ribbon
Stash Pearls.

I am beyond excited about our trip out West. We will be gone 3-4 weeks. I'll try and post once in awhile if I can - we should have internet access sometimes. Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments. And enjoy your fall!!!
