I still have more of these chipboard shapes left and I started with that and this is the card it became. Sometimes I have something in mind and other times I just grab something and start with that and make the card from there and that is what happened with this card.
Now I can't exactly tell you how many coats of paint it took to cover this bird but I am thinking it was like 4 or more, and it has to dry between coats, so I tried not to do lay the paint on too thick. After it was totally dried I rubbed on some gold metallic cream I have, They are from Craf-T, I googled them and found a video showing how they come HERE . I couldn't find them for so long and when I was going through my hubby's art supplies looking for something else, I found them and took them back :)
The paper strips were in my scraps bin, I stamped the sentiment on one of the strips and felt it still needed something to give it more of a feminine feel to it so I added a punched scallop border and some sequins :)
