I wanted to work with Artistic Outpost's brand new Bluebird plate, and I thought it would be fun to make a tiny card. This little card is slightly smaller than an ATC. I made it smaller so it would still fit in the envelope once folded and embellished. I love this plate, and I love Almost Amethyst, so I put the two together. AA is hard for me to capture digitally, so when I used my photo correcting software it turned very blue. There are Primas, a stick on gem, embroidery floss and some retired SU! lilac ep. I also used an SU! punch to highlight a section of the stamp. For that section I did not want to emboss because you lose some of the incredible detail that is so integral a part of Artistic Outpost stamps. Here's the latest AO news:
