Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge
Hello and happy Friday the 13th! Today was my "lucky" day, I had a free coffee coming at the wonderful little coffee stand I frequent every Friday at my local farmer's market. I had my regular, which is a large iced Irish Cream latte with an extra shot of espresso. The ladies who run the stand are Amish, a mother and daughter team, and they are just the nicest people. I don't even have to tell them what I want anymore, they know it by heart! So the day started out well for me :)
When I got home I decided to break open more of my new Winnie & Walter stamps and dies. I'd saved one of the Winnie & Walter gift certificates I'd won a few months ago, and that combined with my monthly craft budget allowed me to get several of the new items from the last release. It was SO HARD to narrow down my list because I loved everything from this last release!! If I do well at a craft show I'm doing next weekend I want to pick up a few more items from them, fingers crossed. I'm playing along with the current Rerun challenge. I don't own the Happy Christmas stamp set that they're featuring this month so I'm using one of the DT cards as inspiration. Specifically, Kelly Griglione's gorgeous ornament card! But instead of hanging ornaments and a big sentiment my card features hanging bird houses and a big sentiment.
Originally the card was going to be one layer, I had cut masks of the birdhouses and birds so I could make it that way, but when I was coloring I wasn't happy with the way a few of the birdhouses looked, so I ended up restamping 2 of them and cutting them out. I used my Zig Clean Color brush markers to color everything. I used very light blue Copics (B000 and B0000) to color around the images and make them pop a bit more. I cut the word home from gold card stock.
Hope you've had a "lucky" day today too, and that you enjoy a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by :)
