Pattern Play Day 2 Homework

This class has been so informative so far with lots of hints and techniques that you can use to make fast and simple cards with the supplies you have on hand.  i dug out my Tim Holtzs sizzix bird with bird cage die and die cut bird and stamped with a $1 stamp I had to embellish the card and used some layered flower stickers I found in my stash that the colors went along with.  I then gave ink resist a try with some clear embossing on some pattern paper and a little walnut stain distress ink.  My sentiment stamp needs some breaking in but i used Simon Sys Stamp Flowered friends for that.  I will be doing this again and did not use any solid papers with the exception of the bird which i stamped on to give it a pattern also.  I think I will try another technique I watched today and make another card.

Your card is adorable. I really like the resist image that you used. The paper looks like it was completely altered.
