This is my second week as guest designer at Classy Card 'n Such this month! Besides the paper and circle punches, everything I used is from their great online store (just follow the links). And remember, you can use the code DIANAN-10 (All caps, no spaces) to get 10% off your purchase. The second challenge this month is to make your own background using stencils or a background stamp. This is my first try at stenciling and using embossing paste. SO FUN! I wanted the birch trees to stand out more so after the paste dried, I laid the stencil back on and sponged on some colors from Spring 2012 Seasonal Ink Pads by Tim Holtz. I added a single bird in silver craft foil. Thanks for looking and hope you can play along!
