In conjunction with her first kit release in her Etsy shop, the Vintage Page Designs Bird Kit, Ali Manning is hosting a bird challenge on her blog. Vintage Page Designs.
As guest designer for her limited edition kit, here is the sample I made for her challenge:
About my card:
I used one of the beautiful quality blank cards that Ali sent me. I set out to paint a background to match the birds that I fussy cut from one of the kit pages--each page a vintage original in pristine condition. I ended up using a mixture of Adirondack acrylic paints mixed with ArtQuest USA MicaColor watercolors in vintage tones. I added the lace trim from the kit. Ali packages her products so beautifully that I hate to open them. Obviously I did open them, but saved every bit of wrap. Some of that wrap is the twine behind the Jenni Bowlin banner I created to make the word chirp. I photographed my card resting on top of one of the vintage dictionary pages from the kit.
I hope you have time to play along with the bird challenge. You'll find the details on Ali's blog HERE along with inspirational samples from the other guest designers.
