PSC53D Blog Hop with Birds & Blooms

PSC53D: The Challenge/Twist: create a card with a sentiment for the occasion of your choice. Include the sentiment on the front. / Include a bird or a bloom on your card or a combination of both.
See our main blog @ http://perfectsentimentschallenge.blogspot.com for complete information about the blog hop.



 My background paper is Stampin Up & it started out craft color & it comes already embossed.  When I rubbed distress ink over it the embossed part pops out!  So cool.  So I have flowers in the background.  Then I simply printed my sentiment for Microsoft word, cut & matted it.  The dove and cream poinsettia is from K and Company.  My brad is from Lost and Found.  Ribbon: Stampin Up gross grain.

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice.
