Orange - More Orange

... for Vicki's challenge: Coming Up Orange and for me getting my crafty mojo back .... which has not been great lately, it all went into the cakes ....
The last two weeks we worked with lovely images from Lunagirl Images. For this week I used these beautiful birds from one of the collagesheets
It has been a long time that I created an ATC and it was lovely to work again with this size. I tea-dyed the ATC and then stencilled and stamped (Darkroom Door) the background with Distress inks. I really love to create backgrounds with this technique, it is sooo much fun to play with the inks.
To give it a bit more depth and a bit more shine I sprayed it with glimmer mist (unfortunately not very visible on the photo). The birds are printed, cut out and layered on the ATC. The finishing touch is a bit of flower ribbon.

Hope you can join us for the challenge, just pop over to Vicki's blog for more inspiration from the DT. Petra.

Hi Petra. Your ATC is lovely. If it's been a while since you've made one, you'd never know it! Love your tea dyed then stenciled and stamped background. I also really like those birds from a collage sheet. They look really pretty against the ATC background. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

Welcome back to blogging Petra. The Olympics were very cool and I found myself wathing them alot also.
Such a fun and colorful ATC. I rarely use orange except for Halloween. Maybe I need to rethink that!
hugs Lynn

Beautiful ATC, Petra... I love that background and the bits of ribbon/flowers remind me of eggs in a nest. Lovely work.

This is lovely Petra. I think we've all been away from blogging for these busy summer months.
