Somewhere Over the Rainbow …

…bluebirds fly.

At Craft Your Passion it’s technique time!In fact we’d like to see EASEL CARDS.If you’d like to play along please click the link.There’s the chance to win some digi stamps and take a look at the fabulous DT cards! 

I decided to do something a little different and use acetate. As I was using Bird Flight from Lauretta’s Digital Stamps  I thought I’d make it appear as if the bird was actually flying.It’s attached with a thin strip of acetate which is fixed at the top of the card behind the strip of ‘sky’.I also resized and flipped the image to make the small birds carry the banner.The top row of flowers have been created by a kind of paper piecing method.I first punched the top edge of the green paper,then punched some pink paper,carefully cut along the bottom of the strip and then glued it over the top.The flowers growing up the fence have been individually cut from another punched strip.
