A Happy Hello!

While I was browsing Blog Land I came across
a great new site to me.
The current challenge there is to make a card
without patterned paper.
You can find all the details Here
Now this was right up my alley as I love to play
with stencils so went into my play station
and created this simple and colourful card.
I used a coloured card base that matched my
speckles and feathers.
Here are the products I used -
Stampin' Up Four Feathers Die/Stamp Set popped
Tim Holtz Speckles/Splatters Stencils
Tim Holtz Distress Inks -
Peacock Feathers/Abandoned Coral/Frayed Burlap
A bow in Jute
Kaisercraft Pearls
Inspired by Stamping - Big Hello Stamp.
I really liked how the distress ink made
the sentiment look splotchy as it blended in
with the stencilling.
So there it is - a great way to relax after a hard
morning in my garden weeding.
Thanks for dropping in.

Oh, I love this. I have said before that I"m so partial to feathers, and you have used them perfectly here. Great take on the challenge too with that spatter background, another of my favorites. And the color combo is fantastic, really great card!!
