Presto Patterns Aviary

The Aviary set in the Summer Mini was immediately on my "must have" list. I love the whimsical style of the bird cages and those cute little birds and owl. On this card I've used lots of other products from the mini too. It was a case of having so many new goodies and wanting to use them all NOW! The card started when I pulled out a sheet of Presto Patterns paper and started sponging it with Baja Breeze and Pear Pizzazz. This paper started it's life as a plain white sheet with a clear glossy design on it. When you apply colour with a sponge, spritzer or brayer, the pattern is revealed! Just like magic.
Next I played with the Lattice Embossing folder (another must-have). I sponged mine with some Frost White Shimmer Paint. Finally, the Aviary set was begging to be inked, so I made it the star of the card.

I just finished reading "Before I Fall" by Lauren of those books that stays with you long after you finish it. I couldn't put it down this morning and kept on reading even though I had a million other 'better' things to do. Now I'm sad it's over, and I want to start it all over again!
