Birds of a feather
The theme for this week's challenge at Eureka Stamps is 'Birds of a feather'. I have used digi numbers 28506 (Bunch of chicks) and 14507 (From all of us) to create my card.
I coloured the image using Promarkers and cut it out using a Spellbinders label 10 die. Keeping it in the die I rub distress ink around the edges. I then drew round the die on yellow card, cut it out and matted the coloured image onto it. I applied flower soft to one of the chicks and added a card beak to it.
I scored and folded cream card to form an easel card and matted and layered pale yellow card and paper from Papermania onto the base of the easel. I cut out the sentiment, distressed the edges using distress ink, matted it onto yellow card and attached it to the card using foam pads to form the easel stop.
I coloured two lengths of organza ribbon using Promarkers, wrapped them round the lower half of the easel and tied them together, afterwhich I attached the image. Finally I tied four pieces of ribbon together and attached these to the corner edge of the easel stop.
