Holly's Workshop

Well, I wanted this card at the end, but I can't figure out how to move it, so here it is at the beginning. The cardstock is Dusty Durango, black glossy and brushed copper. I embossed the sentiment (from Kind & Caring Thoughts), weeds/flowers and pheasant from Autumn Days in black on the copper CS. I tried to do the black grosgrain ribbon in a kind of remembrance bow. I demoed this card, sorta kinda, on brushed gold, using Basic Black CS instead of glossy and turned it on its side and put rubbon border along the bottom. This is my original design.

Holly hosted a lovely workshop on July 7 and we made a couple of nice make and takes. The first one is uses the new Autumn Days stamp set, Whisper White, Soft Suede and Crushed Curry cardstocks and Dusty Durango and Soft Suede inks. I CASE'd this card directly off of Splitcoast at Having problems with links again, but if if doesn't work, you can copy and paste to look at my inspiration. We stamped the pheasant and fussy cut him out, not bothering with his feet, then stamped just his feet on the card face before attaching rest of him with dimensionals. Russel suggested that the pheasant would be more lifelike if he had a white neck like a real pheasant, so we took the Signo white gel pen to his neck. A very simple guy card.
Our second make and take was also lifted right off of Splitcoast. Instead of tearing the Chocolate Chip layer, we punched a border with the eyelet border punch. We also used Dusty Durango for the base and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
That's Holly at head of table with her guests. Pam is showing her make and take.

Thanks for stopping by.
