Do you have a signature look that you make? My husband says that he can always tell when I'm about to make my "eh" face. I guess it's more of an "eh" gesture. According to Dennis, I scrunch up my nose, pull my mouth to the left side and shrug my shoulders.
When do I use my "eh" gesture? Oh, that's easy to answer. An "eh" gesture is always pulled out when I'm undecided or not thrilled over something.
Today's Stamping 411 card deserves an "eh" gesture. It's not that I don't like it.....it's just.......well, "eh".
My card all starts with the Whisper White base card.
Layer #2 is a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of So Saffron cardstock.
The next step is to take some of the pretty dsp (from the Floral District dsp pack). Before adhering it to the So Saffron layer, I took a strip of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot using one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits. I just love how intricate the design is!!!!
To cover the top seam of the dsp, I used a length of the Whisper White stitched 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. I love how the white on white adds texture to this card!!!
For the three Lucky Limeade strips, the banner edge was cut using my 1" Square Punch. Each strip was given some depth by using the Direct to Paper technique using my Lucky Limeade ink pad.
I chose to use the bird from Betsy's Blossoms for my focal image. I stamped her on some Whisper White cardstock using Rich Razzleberry ink. I used my Basic Gray marker to dot her eye. The empty eye was a little too scary for me! The bird sits upon a branch cut with the Bird Punch using a scrap of Lucky Limeade cardstock.
Well, what do you think of my "eh" card? I'd love to hear your comments.
I'd also love for you to stop by the Stamping 411 blog to check out what the other operators have made. What did they do with this rather difficult sketch? I'm off to check it out too!
