I am excited to begin my term on the CSI design team with this super fun reveal!

This case is full of Spring and I chose this pair of Cardinals as my subject.  The birds are all a twitter with donning their best plumage, foraging for food, and finding that perfect mate.   I created my background by painting a layer of gesso on black card stock and then took a dry brush to rough it up and finally too the wood end of the brush and made the slat lines.  It actually turned out like what I saw in my head!  That doesn't happen too often.

For my evidence I used: wood, paint, distressing, and a fence.  My journaling is on the wonders of Spring.

nicely done, thought that was just wood grained paper, so it's realistic!
