Shopping Birds

The current Shopping Our Stash challenge is Put a Bird on It. So I did. 

I have never used this bird stamp for anything but sympathy cards, and here I am using it again for another one. I have never actually paired it with the sentiment that comes with it, but since this is for family, it seemed just right. This is also likely the least CAS sympathy card I've made. I was pretty excited when I found not just one, but TWO patterned papers that actually coordinated with the distress inks I had sponged on the bird panel. I added a strip of woodgrain embossed cardstock to bring out the white-embossed bird. 

Supplies: Bazzill marshmallow cardstock, Strathmore mixed media paper, Basic Grey Plumeria patterned paper, Unity/Webster's Pages Love Itty Bitty stamps, Versamark & tumbled glass, stormy sky, antique linen, iced spruce, bundled sage & chipped sapphire distress inks, Ranger clear & Hero Arts white embossing powders, Papertrey Ink woodgrain impression plate, Spellbinders oval die

Pin It Now!
