I was determined to get my entry in for this week’s CASE Study Challenge. I just had to find the right bird! I finally found the perfect bird......not in a stamp drawer but in a paper pad! How many of you buy those gorgeous glittery paper pads (usually with a coupon!) and never cut into them??? While I love the looks of them....they never seem to fit into the grand scheme of my crafting adventures. This paper with the embellished bird came from the Recollections Portobello Road Collection. A collection of 48 papers.............which I purchased for one glittery bronc rider. I am clueless how a bronc rider and western themed pages go along with this bird and frame! My quest for the perfect bird started with this inspiration card by Kristii Lockart.
Once I found the perfect page, I had to set out making it my own. I cut out the inner oval and matted with a script background page. (I even managed to use another piece of paper from the paper pack!) I then stamped my sentiment in Coca Pigment Ink. I love the richness of the new pigment inks by Close To My Heart. Here is a close up of the oval.
I carried over the same text paper to the inside of my card as well. I distressed the edges to give it a bit of an aged look. I love the end result. I think I need to actual make the bronco card that I bought the pad for in the first place!
