Spark Challenge

So for my creation for the spark challenge.. I loved the idea of a wall hanging photos.. and Emily totally made this cute card.. so I was totally inspired by her creation. Mine of course is a little different.. and it looks sooo easy.. and it is.. just lots of steps.. at least how I did it. :) so I took the 2 rectangle shaped signs from the hang up's set and stamped them out 1x for the large, and 4 times for the small. I then cut them out.. leaving a little border. I stuck these down to my card base temporary, and then used broken china distress ink and rubbed it all over the card.. In real life the blue is a much more pale blue.. :) then I took the masks off to have the white squares. Using a post it note, I placed it down, and stamped out the rectangles using the Pumice Stone distress ink, then using that same ink I stamped the birds all but the yellow one and the sentiment with the same color.. I used some fuzzy scallop ribbon to separate the two.. I really love how this turned out.. :)
** We are headed out of town for the Holidays and will be back on the 23rd.. so no new cards from me for a bit.. :) Merry Christmas!
