Up in the Air


I finally had a chance to play with my SU hostess set called Up in the Air.  I started with a base of grape jelly cardstock then layered a piece of lily with Kaisercraft Chanteuse.  The images were stamped in StazOn Timber Brown and colored with Prismacolor pencils.  The butterflies were stamped in Brocade Blue.  The little birdhouse I stamped a second time and popped it up over the first one. 


So sweet was stamped in Adirondack Purple Twilight and embossed with clear embossing powder. Kaiser pearls in lavender were added to each corner.


A peek at the inside with a branch and bird's nest ...


I enjoy coloring when I have the time.  We just received some much needed rain and they are predicting more for tomorrow.  I'm looking forward to a day of crafting :-)  Wishing you a great weekend!  I will be joining the ladies over at Make It Monday next week.
