I Am Still Here...

Hello everyone! I have been MIA, I know, I know…I am working on a few things that I am excited to share with you in the next few weeks.  But today, I wanted to show you the altered note pads I’ve been working on. I created several of these, to be used as table favors for a luncheon my Mom is hosting. I really enjoyed putting these together, but can you say TIME CONSUMING?! Oh my word! Here is how these came together…  I used CTMH White Daisy card stock. First, I stamped the eagle, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then covered him with a mask. I sponged on my clouds-my favorite part-it just adds so much dimension and depth and really gives the feeling that the eagle is in flight-LOVE it! Then I stamped the verse. I used Memento Tuxedo Black for this, too. Next, I removed the mask and colored the eagle with Copic markers and inked the edges of the image panel.  Then, I put the mask back on the eagle and sprayed the image panel with shimmer spray. I wanted the sky to sparkle, but not the bird. And finally, I adhered the panel to the note pad using SookWang tape, which is the same as Scor-Tape, but without the high price.  Easy peasy!
