Elegant black & white and colorful tropical (by Miranda)



Hi there,

Today my last two creations made with the birds of Paradise. All along I had the idea to create something simple only using black, white and a hint of gold. Just a simple but elegant card.
I had this black die cut frame in my stash and decided that it was perfect for this card. I had the feather dies also for quit a while and this was a good time to use them!
I have stamped the bird from ' as free as a bird' with Versafine black and added some accents with a gold ink. I have stamped the tail of the bird onto the die cut flower and coloured with the gold.
On the frame I have added some gold pearl pen accents.

Here you can see the gold ink a little better........



And now onto more colorful tropical spheres.............. quite different...isn't it?

I have used the same die cut feathers and flower. I have stamped the bird from the ' as free as bird' sheet with Archival Olive onto a distress ink background and coloured it with color pencils. I have stamped one of the fragments from the Rustic fragments on the flower and draw the same pattern as on the stamped image on the die cut leaves. I think the flowers look a bit like strawberries!


some gold accents on the tail with ink.......




Thanks for your visit and you know....I always enjoy to read your comments!
Hope to have inspired you with these lovely birdies!

Till next time,

  6. Two beautiful cards Miranda. The first look terrific in black, white and gold and love the flower patterned with the tail feathers of the bird and the pretty die cut frame and feathers, and he second with lots of gorgeous colour and a rustic fragment used on the flower this time are equally lovely and like the use of the tail feathers from the first bird in the top and bottom left hand corners. Such clever ideas which add lots of interest. x

  10. Two very different but equally beautiful cards Miranda. I love the elegance of the black and white but the beautiful colours and shading on the second card is also stunning.
