Splattered Bird

My card is a marriage between last week's Make It Monday and this week's

hosted by Danielle Flanders

I needed a simple backdrop for my completed tag and went the route that Danielle's video instructed.

My glimmer mist is a spray bottle I can't control, but this technique was perfect when I used a tapped brush.

(stamp: Papertrey Ink Songbirds  die: Spellbinders Large Labels  other:American Crafts silver washi,American Crafts ribbon,Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Pink Bubblegum)

 I attached silver washi tape to the edge of the cut tag and reran it through the Big Shot for a dipped look.

I believe it adds just the right amount of shine.

I'm also submitting this to

I appreciate your visit!


  1. Love your silver dipped tag (great way to use washi tape!!) with the splattering all around it...cute, cute!! :0)

  2. What a CLEVER, CLEVER idea! I was sure that the bottom bit of 'silver' was dipped! It definitely adds THE perfect amount of glitz. A+ on the splatters (happy to know that I'm not the only one with a out-of-control spray bottle! Love the nice pop of pink too (awesome photo - the pink DP is a nice prop).

    Thanks for sharing your sweet card and valuable tips with us at 'the challenge' :)

  3. Oh that lovely Songbird appears again;) Love that stamp set. Great use of non-traditional Christmas colors.

  4. Oh how sweet, Marlena! Love the sweet Song Bird :-)

  5. Super adorable card! Thanks for playing The Challenge!

  6. Clever idea to add washi to the tag vs. embossing for texture. Cute tag with the Songbird, Marlena!

  7. Love this CAS design! Thanks for joining us at The Challenge this week.


Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to stop in! ;)
