For today’s Global Design Project Challenge we have a sketch and I am using the Best Birds stamp set and Birds and Blooms Thinlits.
This is a new set which has not been used so far. I was itching to use it but was nervous on how to work with the bird and make him realistic. In fact the first attempt did not work so this is my 2nd attempt.
This rather chubby little bird was pretty easy to stamp and colour and the matching framelits made cutting around him pretty easy. I adore the brand too, I can see me using that a lot in the coming months. I used the sponge brayer to create the mottled sky background using Pool Party Ink.
I also embossed the woodland embossing folder for the background of the card to add some more texture. My chubby bird is really standing out from the front of the card isn’t he?
