TCP Tuesday 170--You Tweet Thing
Well, it's Tuesday already and I actually am posting my card for this week's TCP Tuesday challenge from The Cat's Pajamas TODAY...ON TUESDAY! I think this is a first in a long time!
Leigh is our Hostess with the Mostess and I was immediately inspired to make a card using her sketch, hence the Tuesday post. Not that I'm not immediately inspired by any of the other challenges, all the moons were in perfect alignment at just the right time, giving me had a little bit of stamping time. And hey, when that happens, you just gotta take it, right?
Here's a look at the sketch that Leigh is calling the "Picture Ledge" sketch--the train of thought being the 3 overlapping panels are similar to pictures sitting on a skinny shelf on the wall (she was actually inspired by just that!--Um, Genius!).
I have to admit I've had this bird that I cut out of chipboard from the Home Tweet Home CutUps die (took a few swipes and a little detail trimming through the Big Shot to do) sitting on my desk all glittered up and ready to go for a long time. So I decided it could work well for this design, pairing it up with the birdhouse from the same CutUps die, a Heart from the Heart Trio CutUps die, the Big Scallop and The Tweetest Things stamp set. Some Black Licorice Divine Twine and Lt. Pink Glitzy Glitter are also thrown in for good measure, or as my mom says--she's a native Texan too--"MAY-ZHURE". She says the tweetest things.
Ok, Leigh has all the specifics on how to play along in the challenge, so go check it out HERE. Her card is "A-MAY-ZING"! Then add your card to the slide show on Alma's blog HERE so we can see what you did!
SUSIE Q-TIP: Don't forget that not ALL outline and sentiment images need to be stamped in black. I did the stamping on this card using a Ranger Distress Ink pad in brown (Walnut Stain). I think with the other black accents, the sentiment and birdhouse in black would have been too much. Think about it.
