ID: MC July/12 - Grey Hexagons - Just A Note card
size: 4.25"w x 5.5"h

Created: July 21, 2012

OK, I think I've broken my slump... 2 cards in one day - that's good. Love the way it turned out.

I'm using one of the 10 tiny sentiment stamps from Quietfire Design

I started with a white side folded card and lightly sponged Pan Pastels "Neutral Grey" over the whole front, wiped with a tissue, lay a Crafters Workshop 6" x 6" stencil of wire mesh and sponged more of the Neutral Grey. Sprayed with Krylon Workable Fixative.

I used my electronic cutter and cut 2 sizes of hexagons from white cardstock. I then colored the larger sized ones with Pan Pastels using "Paynes Grey" and a sponge and then wiping with a tissue. The smaller sized hexagons, I applied Sookwang double sided tape and sprinkled Ritz micro fine glitter "Warm Highlights" or combinations of "Chartreuse" & "Star Dust". Then adhered the two sized hexagons together and then onto card front.

Stamped the leaf sprigs (Dylusions "Doodle Parts #34582") onto white cardstock to use as a stamp silhouette, scanned and imported into my electronic cutter, cut some out. Colored the stamp with Distress markers (Peeled Paint & Pine Needles) misted with water and pressed my cut out onto the stamp, then did a 2nd generation stamping onto the 2nd leaf cut out. Adhered them pleasingly under some of the hexagons.

Die cut the bird cage (Memory Box "Vintage Birdcage"), inked with Versafine Black Onyx and embossed with Marcasite embossing powder. Adhered to card with 3D foam tape.

Punched out the bird (Martha Stewart), colored with Distress Marker Shabby Shutters and embossed with Psychedelic embossing powder. Added a small black dot for the eye and adhered to card with 3D foam tape.

Die cut the label, using only half of the die cut, stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx, sponged some Distress green around the edges and adhered to card, Adding mini green rhinestones.
