A Little Bird Told Me - Card by Florence

Good Morning everyone


I am sure by now, after seeing all of the wonderful makes by the team, you will agree just how  fabulously versatile the two new rubber stamps sets are.


Today I would like to share with you a card made using the new "A Little Bird Told Me" stamp set.
I have gone for a rustic feel with this card but with a little alternation it could easily be made into a Christmas Card.  Maybe giving the bird a red breast and color the background in festive colors.  Maybe a little glitter or similar to give a hint of snow. 



To make this card
Stamp the bird and mask it off.
Put some ink onto an acrylic block or plastic file folder and spritz with water.
Distress Ink or Spray Ink is perfect for this technique.
Swish a piece of white card around in the diluted ink.
Repeat if necessary, drying the ink between applications.
Leaving the mask on the bird, stamp the trees in the background.
Remove the mask and color the bird.
Tip:  If the mask has gone outside of the bird image and has left white areas, take a damp brush and blend the background ink a little to fill them in.
Optional: Apply a coat of spray fixative to fix the ink.
Make up the card as seen.

Thank you for looking.

Happy Stamping

  2. This is a really pretty scene Florence and I love the way you have smooshed the ink and there are little random spots in the sky area and the beautifully coloured bird in the foreground finishes the card to perfection. x
