it is definitely time for a vacation - Catch the bug Free Friday

February 3, 2017
 
It's February.. Hope all are doing great in the new year and you're having fun crafting or vacationing. I just made a card that would be great for that person going on a vacation or wants to.. Using the Free Friday image..
 
Catch the bug Free Friday  .. You can see how the design team used the image and you can find the images over at the Bugaboo Store
 
 
This is the card. I used Ranger inks and just painted the inks on some Bristol paper. I used three colors of blue and I first squished the ink pad on my craft sheet and then spritzed with water. Ran my brush through it to get some color and dropped it on the paper and moved it around and repeated till I got the effect I wanted. I did the same with the image using a lighter blue. Once done I used a white pen and did it seems like thousands and thousands of dots to represent snow.. I  colored the Winter Bird with copics and cut it out of Simon Says stitched circle die. I added G-rated sentiment and punched with my Stampin up punch. I added some bakers twine and a Stampin up brad.  I thought with Christmas gone and it's still kinda winter and so many ski or go on ski vacations or just because you want to cheer someone up this would be perfect..
