Final Day of Sneak Peeks! Winged Whispers

My cards for today use a beautiful new set that will be available at midnight tonight from Clear Dollar Stamps... Winged Whispers. My first card uses the sparrow and some dp that I found in my stash by Flair. I love that it has music on it, because the sparrow reminds me of the hymn - "His Eye is on the Sparrow". I watercolored my sparrow with watercolor pencils and a waterbrush on naturals ivory cardstock, then cut it out with oval nestibilities. The layers are embossed and torn and distressed to match the designer paper, and everything is tied together with gold cord and a button for a touch of elegance. Hmmm... distressed elegance? Is there such a thing?? LOL!

CARDSTOCK AND PAPERS: Kraft, Ivory Naturals, K&Co DP, Flair DP
INK: Caramel, Memento Desert Sand, Tuxedo Black
MARKERS (if any):none
ACCESSORIES AND EMBELLISHMENTS: Waterbrush, gold cord, paisley cuttlebug folder, large oval nestibilities, sponge, button
COLORING MEDIUM (if any): watercolor pencils & waterbrush

My second card is colored with prismacolors and oms. I love my copics and can hardly put them down, so I have to *make* myself color with different mediums occasionally!! I used some older SU dp layered on some K&Co dp for the background layers, and did more sponging and tearing. I even pulled out my eyelets. I hate to have neglected embellishments! :-)

CARDSTOCK AND PAPERS: Caramel, White, Ivory Naturals, K&Co DP, Wanted SU DP
INK: Rust, Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Tuxedo Black, mustard
MARKERS (if any):none
ACCESSORIES AND EMBELLISHMENTS: eyelets, scrappers' floss, pearls, cropadile, sponge
COLORING MEDIUM (if any): prismacolors and oms

Don't forget that the other CDS designers have more to share, too!! I'm heading their way now!

Here's the list... and the links are in my sidebar. Thanks for visiting and happy shopping!! :-)
