I Tweet You... with Tamiko

Hey folks Tamiko here.. Today I am feeling a little under the weather but I was able to stamp and color an image to create a card. I have been staring at a little wooden birdie on my desk for well over a week and I vowed to also to add him, some kinda way.  The papers I recycled were brown kraft shipping paper.  Here is my card for today.

As with all paper projects you can't do anything unless you start with paper.  First thing I do make sure I have what's  needed by creating my  favorite papers with any of the Arnold Grummer Paper Mill Kits.  The directions can be found here.   After my paper was made I stamped the image and painted it using Colour Arte Twinkling H2Os . I fussy cut the image and adhered it to the base of the card with Helmar's Craft & Hobby PVA glue.  I added some lace trim and hand stamped a sentiment on painted paper.. and embellished with a wooden bird.

This card was simple and short and yes I could have used regular papers.. but I like the texture of my handmade papers.  The texture alone will win every time. 

Don't forget if when you are shopping over a the Arnold Grummer Store feel free to use Code SPRING20 to save 20% on your regular priced order through the month of MAY 2015.
