GCD STUDIOS FACEBOOK THEME PROJECT

        Hi ya!  It is time for another fun project using my GCD Studios products.  This time we had a challenge to use feathers and/or silk in our work.  Our jumping off point were these stunning inspiration pics up above.....we were to create a light and airy feeling..a feeling of Spring.   I think of fresh saturated colors...melons and raspberries....(can you tell I am looking forward to the fruit season?) I decided I wanted to do a couple of cards.   I used their Homespun chic line and the Artsy Urban line....both designed by the fab Melody Ross! Here are the products I used in these particular cards.   Homespun chic recipe cards (adore these),  Artsy Urban vintage brads, Artsy Urban metal brads (like little pieces of art), Artsy Urban Journal cards, Homespun chic diecut borders, Artsy Urban glitter chipboard, and Artsy Urban transparency designs.    The flowers I made are diecuts...ran through my Sizzix machine.....layers and layers of silk and tissue (for bulk). The first card...just loved joining the two sentiments together.  I thought it was fitting...and a lifting of spirit...just like Spring.   When I thought of feathers...I automatically thought...BIRDS.  So that was my jump start on my second card.   I wanted the bird to seem like she was ready for take off....almost like the card captured her in mid air.  Yes...I always am telling a bit of a story with my cards.  Or maybe I just have too much imagination.   I added some of my fave crinkled seam binding...and inked her up...I wanted a distressed imperfect look.  There you have it!  Hope you enjoyed my take on the project! XoXo, Cherry
