Words of Comfort

was determined to get my entry in for this week’s CASE Study Challenge.   I just had to find the right bird! I finally found the perfect bird……not in a stamp drawer but in a paper pad!  How many of you buy those gorgeous glittery paper pads (usually with a coupon!) and never cut into them???  While I love the looks of them….they never seem to fit into the grand scheme of my crafting adventures.   This paper with the embellished bird came from the Recollections Portobello Road Collection.  A collection of 48 papers………….which I purchased for one glittery bronc rider.  I am clueless how a bronc rider and western themed pages go along with this bird and frame!  My quest for the perfect bird started with this inspiration card byKristii


Once I found the perfect page, I had to set out making it my own.  I cut out the inner oval and matted with a script background page.  (I even managed to use another piece of paper from the paper pack!)  I then stamped my sentiment in Coca Pigment Ink.  I love the richness of the new pigment inks by Close To My Heart.  Here is a close up of the oval.

I carried over the same text paper to the inside of my card as well.  I distressed the edges to give it a bit of an aged look.  I love the end result.  I think I need to actual make the bronco card that I bought the pad for in the first place!
