Live Your Life Bird Card

Thursday I received from Studio Calico a box full of goodies which I recently won. Yesterday and today I was playing with the Mister Huey color mists and the masks on scrap pieces of cardstock. With the mask with the icons I'm going to have to practice more. I couldn't quite get the hello one to come out perfectly. Here is the card I came up with.
After playing with this triangle mask and gesso as well as texture medium I decided to just use the spray. I sprayed the three different colors randomly and this is what I came up with for my background.

I had originally printed and cut the bird out with my Cameo but then I realized it was the wrong colors and too large for the card I wanted to use it on. The bird was a Dover Sample at one time. I think I have downloaded most of the samples as I'm lucky if I can download three new ones a week.

I took the mask that has the icon and sprayed a whole page. I used the First Kiss color mist and it turned out darker and more orange like using a vanilla color of cardstock. Once it was dry I stamped my sentiment on one of the shapes and then cut it out.

Hope you are having a good weekend. It is overcast and has been raining off and on. A good day for crafting as well as sorting through things.

Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
