Today’s word prompt for the Scrap ‘N Stamp challenge is ‘wings’. This gave me the perfect opportunity to use some new goodies that I recently ordered! You may recall, our recent Blog Hop was called For the Birds (you can start at my post HERE, if you haven’t seen it yet), so I thought I’d carry on with the theme.
Bird Bath is the name of a new stamp from Impression Obsession. I think it’s adorable; I’m a big bird watching fan – usually just in my backyard! I also wanted to show off the new Poppystamps Art Deco Curve Border die, so I included it in my card.
That little blue bird is so cute! And he’s got the bird bath all to himself!
With the ornate Art Deco Curve Border, I wanted to keep the rest of the card quite simple. Do do this, start with a piece of white cardstock. Blend some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink around the top 2/3rds of the piece. Next, stamp the Bird Bath image in Nocturne ink, in the middle of the card. While the ink is still wet, cover it with clear embossing powder, and then heat set. Now you can choose your medium for colouring the image. I chose a few of my Copic and Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers, and then added a few highlights with a white Gel Pen.
With a light brown cardstock, use your Big Shot with the border die, and die cut a total of 4 borders. Layer and glue 2 together for each of the top and bottom of the card front. Before attaching the die cuts, place the top one on the front panel, and line up the sentiment stamp, from the Colorado Craft Company Whishing Happiness stamp set. Once you’ve got the alignment, remove the die cut, and stamp the sentiment in Nocturne ink. Repeat the heat setting of clear embossing powder over the sentiment. Now, attach the borders to the card front, and then attach it to a light pink card base, using foam tape.
Doesn’t that sentiment just perfectly suit this happy image? You can send this card for just about any occasion.
