happy monday :) this week at BBTB2 our incredibly talented and ever so sweet donna has chosen our theme..the flying bird from the floral embellished cartridge. like me, if you dont own this cart dont fret.. just use another bird from another cart.
for my project i made a rustic type of ornament. i hang a few wreaths every christmas and embellish them with hand made items like this that i make.i cut a piece of cardboard and colored with tim holtz distress stains (wild honey and vintage photo) i added distress stickles (wild honey and rock candy) i then hand drew a tree branch on cardboard and cut it out. i colored it in with the distress stains (walnut and wild honey) i then added martha stewart punch branches, and added liquid applique and heated. i pop dotted the branch and weaved thread through it. the birds i cut from beyond birthdays. ( i just snipped the branches from their beaks) the star i cut using george cartridge. i added 7 gypsies seam binding for the hanger and distressed the edges of the cardboard a bit. added color box fluid chalk. the joy stamp is one of those michales $bin goodies. seriously this was really super easy to make, hope ive inspired you to make one :) let me know if you do id love to have a look on your take :) thanks for stopping by my blog have a great day :) xxxshelly
