The Eagle - The Paper Players #252

The theme of this week's challenge with The Paper Players is the Great Outdoors.  After all it is summer and what a better time to connect with nature.
I bought this Eagle stamp when I was in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago, and thought the image would be perfect for this challenge.

  • The base card is Basic Black cardstock, layered with Crumb Cake carstock embossed with the Boho Chic embossing folder.  Before embossing I stamped the image of the single tree from "Lovely as a Tree" multiple times near the bottom, using Old Olive ink.  The images didn't turn out as well as I hoped.  The idea was for the Eagle to appear to be flying over the forest.
  • On the left hand side I adhered a piece of Go Wild DSP pack, sponging the edges with Crumb Cake Ink.
  • Near the bottom, horizontally, I embossed a piece of Basic Gray cardstock with the Woodgrain folder and sponged the edges with Basic Gray ink.
  • The Eagle was coloured with ink pads and an Aquapainter, using multiple shades of browns and rusts.  The head was highlighted with a white gel pen.
  • The image panel was sponged with Crumb Cake ink and then matted with Basic black cardstock.  It was adhered to the card front using dimensionals.
  • The embellishment is an Eagle feather.  I stamped a feather "Four Feathers" stamp set, using Versa Mark  and Crumb Cake ink and embossed it with Clear embossing powder.  It was die cut using the Feathers framelits.  I attached it to the upper left corner using a glue dot and tying some linen thread in a bow around the top.  Another glue dot near the bottom kept it from sliding out of place. 
The sentiment on the inside says:  "Even a little bird can FLY like an Eagle"
