This week over at CAS-ual Fridays, the challenge is to create a card inspired by a song title or lyric.
I was thrilled because my hubby is an accountant by day and a musician by night. He grew up listening to the Beatles and learned to play the guitar by listening to songs over and over and over again. I enlisted his help, but I must say that I came up with this one all by myself. Yep, you read it right. The first Beatles song that came to mind was Blackbird. I immediately thought of the bird image from PTI's Iconic Images. This song is pretty special to me since it was the first song that my hubby played for me on guitar when we were dating. Aw, so sweet, I know. It has such a sweet soft melody.
So I created my card using this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge: Black, white and a splash of brown.
My recent PTI order has lots of new ink and I am thrilled to be able to expand my colors. I used the new Kraft ink for my splash of brown. Can I say that I love this light brown?! I stamped it lightly with my Background Basics: Text Style I and I also stamped the bird image lightly in True Black ink. I gave my sentiment a little more of a smoosh since I wanted it more crisp. I had run my card through by cuttlebug with my Linen/Canvas IP first since I wanted the image and text to be somewhat faded.
And can you believe that this card is my first one layer card?! I know, I know. You just might see a few more of these from me. I am busy in my craftroom making that bubble dress and romper for my kiddos for Easter. I hope to show you those, well, before Easter ;) Thanks for looking!
