Spring is Here...

oh how I wish that were true!!!

Here are two more cards made using the new Birds of a Feather plate from Artistic Outpost

This one is one of my favorites! I decided to do a very simple Cuttlebugged card (swiss dots and distressed stripes) so the nest became the focus. I colored the nest with Copics.

Another simple one. I actually started out just making an ATC. I stamped the text image with resist ink and then rubbed dye inks over it to reveal the image. Stamped and embossed the bird image in black. Added the sentiment and then decided it was too blah. So, I embossed a cream card and layered the ATC on it and was MUCH happier with it.

BTW...all of the white, cream and glossy cardstock I used is available at Artistic Outpost. I so love that Robyn is now carrying my favorite cardstocks for stamping and inking!!!
