FCCB Challenge #151 Bye Bye Birdie

Happy Monday !!
Happy March - Spring is in the air !!

FCCB's new challenge is 
#151 Bye Bye Birdie

It's a special one because we have 12 new ladies on our design team, although sadly that means we said bye bye to several of our lovely ladies

Please pop round to the FCCB blog and take a look at this weeks fabulous projects and then come and play along with us 

I have been messing around with some new toys this week, my get well soon present to me !!
Among them are some gorgeous Distress Inks, these ones's are Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass - BEAUTIFUL !! Thank  goodness for the internet and on line shopping in times of crisis lol

I made this card from a white landscape A5 blank and inked the edges randomly with the 2 colours, they blend amazingly well together
The first layer is white textured card stock inked with Tumbled Glass and stamped with my new Kaisercraft "Crackle" stamp, (I am stunned by the size and quality given the low price) in Shabby Shutters

I inked the opposite way round for the panel and placed a strip of Ice White card behind it, this card gives a much lighter and even effect once the ink dries

I used Straight from the Nest for all my Cricut cuts using the Ice White card, the birds are inked in Vintage Photo and layered up with tiny foam pads 

Super Simple card but lots of messy fun to make
