I made this for my coworker and his family as they are preparing to move out of state. This little gem doubles as a card and a mixed media piece that they can display in their home. The base of the card is actually cardboard. I just inked up the edges with distress ink and then covered both sides with paper. Mauve flower and scroll are by Maya Road. Isn't the color of the scroll pretty? I first covered it with an acrylic gold paint dabber and once it dried I went over it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The hardware is Tim Holtz, of course.
My favorite part of this 6x6 mixed piece is that I used one of my original prints --the bird on the branches! I shot that a few months ago and I thought it would be perfect for this piece considering that they are about to embark on a journey.
In keeping with the bird theme I stamped a bird cage on the envelope in vintage photo distress ink and then that lovely quote using black archival ink. The chipboard bird is also Maya Road --I just painted him black.
Thanks for looking...take flight!
