This week's challenge over at Everything Wendy Vecchi--use a bird and at least one Studio 490 stamp--was truly a challenge for me.
|EWV MAC #19|
Not really sure why, but I just struggled with finding ANY kind of creative mojo this week. Admittedly, it's been a wee bit of a rough one with the Zoo Crew, so...anyway, inspiration was running low. But I felt like I REALLY needed to do this...stretch a little, FIND a little something. So, without further ado, my MAC #19.
Taking a page from Marjie's book, I decided that I REALLY needed to use some of my Basic Grey paper stash. (Hi, My Name is Angie and I'm Addicted to Paper...I'm working the steps, but seem to be stalled outside the local scrapbooking store!) Anyway, the papers are all from the Origins collection, as are the bird and the chipboard embellishments.
The "a little birdie told me" is a Pink Paislee stamp.
Wendy's Studio 490 stamps used are the sentiment (black archival, embossed in clear), Queen Anne's Lace flowers (stamped multiple times in Frayed Burlap), and the bubbly background (Tea Dye). Added some texture & gloss with Glossy Accents and some bling from my stash...VOILA!
