WICKED WEDNESDAY ATC - #28 - EARTH DAY

Over at Wicked Wednesday ATC are some lovely cards from their design team. The sponsor this week is Just Some Lines and I have been honoured again to share the images and make a couple of cards as Guest Designer.
Earth Day doesn't seem as popular in the UK as other countries, but I had fun representing it with the images which were really, really lovely.
I used one of my stock backgrounds (that's card I have used to mop up inks from my craft sheet) and punched the corner with a Martha Stewart punch that has a little bird on it. the border at the bottom is the corresponding border punch. I printed the image onto card, coloured it with distress markers before cutting it out. I simply used 3D foam to stick it to the card. Love this one.

I didn't quite make out this image when  I received it, but once I started to colour it - again with distress markers - I realised it's whole meaning and fell completely in love with it. I used several shades of distress scribbled onto my craft sheet and spritzed with mint perfect pearls to shade the background. A couple of leaf brads, some twisted wire and tiny sticky gems finished it off.
