Two Little Birds (by Julie)

Good morning! Today I have some more fantastic bird designs which are this month's brand new stamps. The set I have chosen for you today is A little Bird Told Me

I started by creating a wash of pinks and purples on some water-colour card, followed by some stencilling with some pink and green dye ink.
The birds were then stamped using Onyx Black Versafine, coloured with pencils and a few high-lights were added with a white marker. I covered parts of the birds with masking fluid and once dry I stippled on green acrylic paint with a dry brush. When it was dry I over stamped with some of the leaves from the Seasonal Fragment set using a green Versafine ink.
The birdcage was stamped onto acetate with black Staz-On and then on the reverse I coloured with a copper, alcohol pen. It was then cut out and glued to the card with Glossy Accents.
I added extra chain links to the cage with a Micron Pen, rounded all of the corners with a Crop-O-Dile tool and then matted the main card onto a black base.

Many thanks for stopping by and any comments you add a very much appreciated.

Please pop back and visit another Design Team member tomorrow xx

  8. This is so pretty Julie and I love the way you have added your own foliage with a little over stamping using one of the fragments. I love the soft coloured birds and the birdcage stamped on the acetate and cut out works so well. x
