LOVE IS IN THE DETAILS
SCRAPBOOKING. CARDMAKING. PAPERCRAFTING

Pretty Bird

I got the Dina Wakley scribbly bird stamps…. (I absolutely love these stamps)  I stamped the set off in black archival ink and sat and water coloured them using distress inks and a water colour brush.  Adults colouring is all the rage and quite relaxing… who knew I was “trendy”  LOL.

I layered the card and added little bits and pieces that were in my stash. I added hints of colour with Lindy’s stamp gang sprays as well.  I used the sprays to colour my flowers to make sure they matched exactly.  I have a little tip to share with you all.  See the white flourish on my card?  I painted gesso onto the stamp and used that on my card.  It adds a very interesting look that I just couldn’t get if I had used paint on the stamp.  The bird image is mounted on foam tape to add dimension.

If you love that bird stamp as much as I do, it’s available in the store right here (the set sells out of the store very quickly – there are many bird lovers out there like me!)
