Fly Away Nightengale



Greetings, and thank you for stopping by my blog today!  This card is for the latest challenge over at Inkspirational.  This week, we have a CASE challenge and are working from the beautiful sample below.  


For my own card, I began by stenciling Vintage Photo Distress Ink using one of Tim Holtz's new stencils onto a Kraft card base.  The focal image is by Red Lead and was water colored with Distress Markers.  The image was matted and layered onto a paper doily over the card base.  ChitChat stickers, cheese cloth and a complimentary metal corner piece from Linda Coughlin at Funkie Junkie completes my card.  

I hope you will take a moment to stop over to Inkspirational to see what the rest of the Design Team has dreamed up to inspire you and then create a project of your own.  For one lucky participant who submits for the entire month of challenges, there will be a gift card for $30 from our sponsor Eclectic Anthology.  

Best wishes to you, Yvonne
