curly birds

I think I may be getting the hang of these challenges - the more you can do with one card the better! So this is my card for the next level and corrosive challenge blogs, which both asked for folded cards this week. I did an accordion fold, changing the measurements a bit from those on the next level tutorial. After cutting out my new curly bird stamps from Elusive Images i just had to play with them, and this is the result.
Base card by papermania, stamped randomly with the bird tails in old paper distress ink. All the images were stamped onto the same base card and silver embossed then fairly randomly painted with H2Os in a mix of blues, greens and lilac. The word plate was mounted onto a thin strip of silver holo, then onto a piece of paper from the Graphicus Guild, then onto more of the blue base card and stuck at the bottom of the last fold. the birds were cut out and glued onto the first 2 folds.
Sorry it is only a scan, don't have a working camera at the moment!

  4. I love these elegant birds with their wonderful swirly tails and you've shown just how versatile they are.

    You have used beautiful colours too and I like the fold you have chosen.

    Thanks for your lovely comments on my 'cute cards' Veronica. They haven't been my cards of choice either up to now (I'll always like the arty stuff better) but with two 1 year old granddaughters I have to 'get my hand in' as I don't think they'll appreciate arty for quite a while yet, Lol!
