ID: MC Jan16 - Quill - ECD Faith - Hummingbirds - Keep Your Faith card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: January 1, 2016

First card for the new year... and I used my Dylusions and other spray mists... also using my newest stencil (which was a gift) from Designs By Ryn and a couple of her Hummingbirds. Love it.

One of the NEWEST "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs ("Faith"), designed by Suzanne Cannon (also available HERE). Also using Els "Alphabet 1 - Caps" & "Alphabet 2 - Lower Case" & "Bunch of Flowers 2".

I'm using also using a "Keep Your Faith..." quote on the inside from Quietfire Design  

("Keep Your Faith");


I scored and folded my cream toned  card. 

Created a mask and solid stencil image of the stencil. Sponged lightly with the solid image using Distress "Gathered Twigs", then used the actual stencil and sponged more heavily with "Ground Espresso". Lay the mask over my sponged tree and sprayed with various Dylusions & other spray mists to create the sky effect. Removed my mask and dried.

Adhered a yellow gauze and some bright yellow string to the bottom right corner. Adhered this decorative layer to my card front.

Die cut a bunch of letters from dark brown cardstock and adhered using the Glad Press 'n Seal technique to adhere the words to my card front.

There wasn't enough room for the whole quote so used Just Rite very small letter "Girl" stamp set for the rest of the quote using Versafine Black Onyx.

Die cut a bunch of 5 petal flowers from color burst decorated 90# watercolor paper and adhered to tree. 

Die cut a bunch of very small inner flowers (Impression Obsession "140-D") from soft finish cardstock, tooled them and then adhered to center of flowers. Adhered a pink rhinestone to each center.

Created an eCut  file of the hummingbird (Designs By Ryn "Hummingbirds 1" set) from white cardstock, painted with QoR watercolors and then added iridescent medium all over. Adhered to card front and then adhered a couple quilled flowers from eons ago...

On the inside: Die cut the "Faith" word from another Brushos 90# watercolor paper salt technique. Smeared some Stickles "Ice Crystals" all over the word. Adhered to inside left side of card.

On the right side I stamped the quote using the black and clear embossed, then sponged the tree as the front tee.

Created eCut files of the flower (Altenew "Whimsical Flowers" set) and of the Hummingbird (Designs By Ryn "Hummingbirds 2" set). Cut both from white cardstock, painted the hummingbird as the front one. The flower I inked the solid image with Distress "Mustard Seed" all over, streaked the center area with "Picked Raspberry" misted with water and stamped. Inked the outline image with "Ground espresso and embossed with Hot Stuff "Oil Rubbed Bronze" embossing powder. Adhered flower and bird to card adding some yellow Stickles to flower center.
