Bird & Bear



Hi all! Here's a card that started out for Karen G's Sweet Sunday Sketch, but I ended up carrying the ric-rac all the way across (because I couldn't get anything to work by bringing it part way across...just more creative struggles on my part, oye!). The sweet Bird & Bear image is another cutie by Penny Johnson. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored it with Copic markers, and then added some mini flower rhinestones with dots of Diamond Glaze. The chipboard butterflies were inked with Memento Tangelo and Brilliance Pearlescent Orange.

Stampavie stamps, Prism papers, ZVA mini rhinestones, Memento inks, and the chipboard butterflies are all available at Stamper's Dream.

Here's a close-up:



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a great day. I'm off to watch the race (if the rain holds out in Texas) and make some bead art with my 5-year-old. Enjoy!
