Hey There!

Hi guys

I've been busy today and I'm back with another card, this time to sneak in on the Picture Perfect challenge over at Paper Smooches Sparks before the doors close.

When I saw this challenge I knew I had just the stamps for it.  If you saw my pebble wedding card here, the birds I've used on this card are from the same set from Inkwell Stamps.  So, I've combined them with some stamps from Paper Smooches and Clearly Besotted to create this card, based on the inspiration picture shown below...

On a panel slightly smaller than my card base, all the elements were individual stamped, and the birds were then coloured with FlexMarkers.  I mounted the panel on 3D foam strips.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Paper Smooches - Shadows and Sentiment Sampler; Inkwell Stamps - Pebbles Celebrations; Clearly Besotted - Paired Up
  • Ink: Versa Color - Sky Gray, Pinecone, Bamboo; Memento - Tuxedo Black
  • Coloured with FlexMarkers

Here's the inspiration photo...
