Picture Frame Card Inspired by Kathy Jones

OK - not sure how many of you follow the Copic Oz blog but recently the massively talented Kathy Jones posted am amazing idea showing her take on a  'Living Card', this idea totally appealed to me and I HAD to try it!  The following is my version of a faux living card.

What I used:

I began by using texture paste through the Quaterfoil stencil, to add the design to a piece of watercolor card.  Once dry I added the Starburst sprays (Tea Pot Purple and Mad Hatter Mint) and allowed these to mix a little.

While waiting for the background to dry I used the same 2 sprays to add colour to a variety of paper flowers.

I added embossing powder over the Bird embellishments CAREFULLY heated and then while the embossing powder was still warm I stamped into it to create the text design.


I coloured the Clear Scraps: Small Oval Fancy Frame, so that it matched my project, and
glued this over the window I had created in the centre of the card.  
Into this window I glued down a flower arrangement.

Finally, I glued the birds onto the card and used a few extra flowers to embellish.  In person it's so shimmery and yummy and the birds look almost iridescent.
