Getting adventurous

I am really starting to get the feel of this card making business, and have started taking some crafty risks and trying new things ....

Brown Birdie Card

I ran my Tim Holtz Distressed Tea Stain Ink Pad over the embossing on this card - it gave a nice antique effect as the embossing was on kraft card.

I then wrapped a little paper twine around the card and glued a lovely wooden bird button from "Up In Annie's Room" (which is available from my on-line store,see here)  for the dimensional look. 

Floral Tag card

I left the round aluminium tag hanging free on this card, which gives it an interesting look.  Onto the tag I glued a card stock flower (I have used these previously on my large paper-clip bookmarks)

I like the pink accent colour on this card.

Last one for today, a simple little butterfly card, the butterfly is dimensional which you cannot really see in this photo.  A pack of 6-8 butterflies in a pack for $2.00 - great price from the discount store.  I think the layout of this card, in softer tones would make a nice sympathy card.

Guess what I am going to try next? Cutting out shapes using die sets on my Cuttlebug - not sure exactly what that involves but another lesson is scheduled with my sister.
