November Just Inklined Blog Hop--Punches

Yippee, it's time for the monthly Just Inklined Blog Hop!!! If you arrived here from Peri's blog you are on the right path, if not please start at Lydia's Blog as you won'want to miss a single stop along the way. Our hostess this month is the wonderfully talented Lydia :)  The theme Lydia chose was to use at least 2 punches.  Here is my card:

For my card I chose the beautiful Kissing Robins.  I added a few evergreen boughs in the upper left corner and I sewed the layers together.  The image was colored with copic markers and sponged with distress ink.
The punches I used were the large MS scalloped lattice,  MS snowflakes, the spiral flower started out as a circle punch and the leaves are MS leaf punch, and finally the Love sentiment tag is a Vintage label tag punch purchased at my LSS.
The snowflakes, snow ridges on the birdhouse, the top scallop of the lattice and the right side of each evergreen bough were covered with MS course glitter.  Of course the glitter doesn't show up in the photo but if you double click the picture it should show up in the enlarged picture :)

Next stop along the hop is the incredibly talented Toni, I know she will have an awesome card to show you!!!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to enjoy the Hop and take time to stop by the store and check out all the new images, there is something for any card you need to, or ever thought of creating!!!

Have a great day!!

Cathy

I love your image and the easel card. The punch gives the card a formal, elegant edge. I love how you have pulled it all together.

Dawn Frost said...

Wow its so soft! I love the greenery around the birdhouse and the way you did the sky around the birds. Did it start out white or is it grey and how did you shade it so perfectly?
