Sweet Stamp Shop: Sentimental Birds

I made this card using Sentimental Birds from Sweet Stamp Shop. When I saw SSS was teaming up with CAS-ual Fridays I was beyond excited that I could enter this card into both challenges! Yay! CAS-ual Fridays' challenge was to make a CAS card that featured soft pastels with black: The Bold & The Beautiful! So I decided to make my bold with black embossing powder and my beautiful by painting with mists and white washing with Tim Holtz Distress stain in Picket Fences. Once the paint dried I adhered black and white washi tape to the edges to make a frame. Then I stamped a sentiment to the flag and affixed it to the cardstock with a black brad.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Inky and glittery fingers for all!

ETA: Yay! This card won the grand prize over at Sweet Stamp Shop!!
