The birds!

A few months ago, I saw a card on Amy Westerman's blog that about knocked me right off my chair. She had made it using a gorgeous bird stamp (oh I LOVE birds!) from a set by Inkadinkadoo.

Well, I bought the set about a month ago and it's been sitting on my work table looking at me every since. All those birds... just looking at me as if to say "we need ink!".

So today I pulled out a packet of beautiful Memory Box papers and fed those little birds some ink!

My favorite of the three is the one in the lower right. I used 4 different shades of Versa Magic Dew Drop inks on the bird and then covered it with Ranger Crackle Accents (you can find both at Eclectic Paperie). The subtle crackle finish just gives it the pop it needed!


Here are the cards individually:




Supplies:
Stamps: Inkadinkadoo, PaperTrey Ink, SU!
Paper: Memory Box, SU!, PaperTrey Ink
Ink: Palette Noir, Palette Burnt Umber, Versa Magic Dew Drops, Copic markers
Misc: Ranger crackle accents, ribbon (Michaels), gold metallic pen, decorative pearls (from Ellen's Store)
