A Little Less Ink....

Sadly, I am on very LIGHT duties (both crafting and computer duties) at present due to a neck and back problem that has flared again. The physio and I are seeing a LOT of eachother. Let me tell you....strapping tape and 39 degree heat do NOT mix...LOL!!! I have been told that I am allowed 15 mins on the laptop TWICE a day and little to NO crafting for the foreseeable least until the niggle settles.

Needless to say....I am going STIR CRAZY. So.....if I could not stamp....perhaps I could punch some things....and I recalled this card fm SCS. So...obeying the physio...over the course of the next week....I came up with these....

In my continuing paranoia to not have 2 cards the same....I switched the orientation. I also mamaged to nearly Match the paper with SU inks. The paper is from the DCWV Jewel Coloured Collection and I matched it up with  Orchid Opulence and Tempting Turquoise.

I stamped off the filigree from Vintage Vogue to stamp the breast of the bird and also sponged chalk onto the back white wing just to help it stand out a little. A rhinestone eye, a twig, gold sticker sentiment and all done!!

The cards (altho not very fancy or complicated) helped to keep the insanity at bay for at least a little while!! Thanks for stopping I have exceeded time time allowance by a smidge...hee hee hee. Will be back soon.

Stuff used:
CS: (SU) Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss,  DCWV Jewel Coloured Collection
Ink: (SU) Stamp and Write Markers in Orchid Opulence, Tempting Turquoise
Stamps: (SU) Vintage Vogue
Punches: SU 2 Step Bird XL punch, Martha Stewart Deep Trellis Border Punch
