Rare Birds ...

I'm over on the Stamp Annie*Thing Blog today sharing some adorable cards that I created using the lovely StampAnnie*Thing Rare Bird stamp set!

I had so much fun creating this card.  After coloring one of the birds with my Copic Markers I cut it out, then used a couple of the other images in the set on textured cardstock to create the scene in my mind. The sky was created with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass & Stormy Sky Distress Ink, and a couple cloud dies. I just added the darker distress ink to my dauber and applied it under the cloud die to get the shape of clouds. The lighter color was then applied over the entire textured cardstock which I blended in with the darker color. The final touch was to add some bling and pop on the bird with 3D foam tape.

This is the first time I've tried this technique and I love how it turned out. 

As stated above, I had fun with this stamp set and couldn't stop with just one card.  I used several of the other images and sentiments available in the set to create this one.

The Rare Birds stamp set is one of many that you will find the Stamp Annie*Thing Store.  Just click on the link below to check them all out!


I hope you love these stamps as much as I do!

Until next time ... Enjoy!
