Tuesday with Tara {take 350} painted birds

Tuesday, May 10th, 2022

Happy Tuesday, friends!

I used some of the leftover painted birds from my art journal page for the inspiration hop (which there is still plenty of time to participate in!  See all the details & start here) as my starting point for this card, since I was going with paint as my inspiration word!  I found this pretty daisy paper in a 6×8″ paper pad by Vicki Boutin and selected the rest of my color palette from there.

I decided to add texture with a layer of corrugated Cardstock on my card base, but since the color wasn’t quite right I added more paint- covering up most of it with Speckled Egg Distress Paint.  I left a rough edge with dryer brushtrokes to add dimension and then splattered Cheddar & White gloss sprays across it.

The floral tiles are cut from Tim Holtz’s stacked hexagons, which I placed staggered across the panel.  As finishing touches, I added some more yellow with twine to hang a word charm and a die cut word by Honeybee.

The birds were cut from a card stock panel I painted with a mix of lemon & cheddar Dina Wakley paints.

Hope you like it!

Inky (painty) hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 349} Love you

Since today’s card is all about the challenge theme “words” I once again used a sentiment from the Bold Text #1 set by Tim Holtz. I then kept going and managed to fit even more words into this mini slimline card…

I absolutely look working with book print, so it was fun to cut the brushstroke flowers from book print as well as regular Cardstock, inking both with Distress Oxide Inks.  I mixed & matched both cuts to make this pretty blossoms really stand out!

As a final ‘words’ detail, I layered a black & white script print paper from Vicki Boutin’s Storyteller paper pad behind the cut out bold text.

This is one of those cards that is both simple and full of details at the same time… but I hope it makes you smile and you enjoy the eclectic mix I used to make it!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 348} Hello There!

Happy Tuesday & Hello There, Sweet Friends!

Today’s card uses a fun combo of products to make a sweet and simple card… florals by Hampton Art Stamps (Hello Beautiful set), Hello There from Bold Text #1 dies by Tim Holtz and the little sweet friend is from Honey Bee Stamps Bitty Buzzwords.  Of course, I’m still playing around with my new Distress color, so today you see a simple color combo of Distress Oxide Inks- Saltwater Taffy and Twisted Citron.

Of course, there’s more fun details like the stitched border from MFT, 3D foam squares and some lime sequins by Studio Katia!  I wish I could tell you where the pink card base came from, but I’m pretty impressed how well it matched the Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide ink!

I’m pretty pleased with this card… really want to play around with other sentiments from the die set in combo with stamped greetings!  Hope you like it too 🙂

Inky hugs,

Tara
