Bird Card

Inspired by some stamps I bought recently, dicky birds seem to have taken me by storm, just love the trend on birds at the moment.

This card was made by stamping a solid rubber bird image with vintage sepia Versafine ink, masking and then overstamping with a text stamp in black onyx Versafine on plain copier paper. The images were trimmed to size and edged with green chalk ink. The words 'Song Bird' were rubber stamped over the bird with chalk ink in emerald green. This completed the panel.

The tag was a clear green epoxy sticker which I stuck to a piece of gold mirri card which had been stamped with the word 'Soar' in black Stazon ink. The tag was trimmed around its edge, a hole punched with my cropodile and a short piece of dark brown organza ribbon tied through the hole. This completed the tag.

The eggs were stamped on white shrink plastic with dove grey Stazon, cut out and shrunk with a heat gun.

The background card was made with cream card and cut/folded to C6 size. A piece of decorative printed paper was adhered to the front of the card and trimmed. The edges distressed with the edge of a pair of scissors before applying old paper Distress Ink direct to paper. This muted the floral design a little. The ink was worked into the edges also.

The card was then assembled. The bird panel was stuck in place with double sided adhesive. The tag was positioned and adhered with glossy accents. The words 'Good Egg' were stamped direct to the card in onyz black Versafine and the eggs applied with glossy accents.

  4. Thanks Heather, as you can see I don't really do 'cute'. It's nice to do a variety of styles though and sometimes moving outside your comfort zone proves to be enjoyable as well as a challenge.
