A card for the alphabet challenge. We are working on the letter 'E' and also were encouraged to CASE a card by one of the other Alphabet challenge participators. I chose to CASE a card by Linda (hotwheels) This is the card I chose: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=20490
I used an oval image panel like Linda did, but I chose a different image, which I coloured with copics and then brayered the sky. Stamped a second image and an extra wing and layered these on top of the original image (which was covered with blue ink) Linda had a dark green bg. I also went with a green. I inked up the wrong side of an embossing folder with olive green, inserted the white cardstock and pressed down, but didn't emboss. Then I inked up the right side of the folder with baja breeze and inserted the cardstock again and pressed again. I ended up with leaves in two different colours and two different directions, but it made a good bg. Added a sentiment and also an oval mat in green dp and then ink distressed the edges of the main panel.

Sweet. We have 3 of these birds here on the farm. I could sit and watch them all day. They leave in the winter. I'm looking forward to summer for The White Family, as I've named them, to return. Thanks for the smile.

Excellent for Letter E. Love the background you created. Thanks for sharing how you did that. It's exceptional. Your egret is awesome. I like how you gave him more dimensional with the raised wing. The ovals are lovely. A wonderful card from a pretty inspiration card. Everyone has been making such great cards, this one is no exception! It's great. TFS

I love this idea for a background image! I have tons of embossing folders and I like some of the patterns but don't always want the depth, if you know what I mean.. The switching of right side/wrong side really gives the card dimension without texture.. Great job, love that you used Egret (Most people don't even know what that is)
