Shopping Our Stash where the theme is Love or Valentine's Day. The second challenge is a Twisted Tuesday Challenge. The challenge is to use the sky and the twist is to use something that flies in the sky. When I read about these challenges I knew I had to combine them and include geese on my project. This past weekend I had seen flock after flock of geese flying in "V" formation. I love to see them in flight and used them as inspiration for my card.
For the card, I began by creating the tiny handmade geese. I drew one tiny Canada goose and used colored pencils to add detail. I cut it out and then used it as a template for the remaining geese. It took a while to cut and color all of them but it was all very relaxing. Next I used a piece of white cardstock, blue ink and a sponge to create the sky background. I glued the geese onto the sky background in HEART formation and added the sentiment. I had briefly thought about putting the geese in a "V" formation, as I had seen them over the weekend, and using the "V" for the word Valentine but instead I ended up with the heart formation. I think I like it better this way. Hmmmm, if only I could inspire those real geese to fly in a heart formation....now that would really be something!
Supplies: Cardbase: Recollections, Cardstock: Recollections, Crayola Colored Pencils, Studio G Ink, MS Word,Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.
You DREW those geese?!?!? Whoa, seriously awesome! Love the heart formation, too. Glad we could inspire you! Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash!ReplyDelete
Thanks! If you look closely you'll see that they aren't all created equally. As I cut them, the cardstock would shift because I cut three at a time. The end result is slightly different shapes here and there...but that makes them unique.Delete
Holy crow (or, geese)!! You drew those geese!!! This card is all sorts of awesome, Brenda! The heart formation rocks! Thanks for playing along with Shopping Our Stash this week!ReplyDelete
Thanks Chris! I really did enjoy the process of creating this card. Even though the geese are tiny and somewhat challenging to cut and later glue on, I loved adding the details with a colored pencil. Thanks for the inspiration!Delete
