Birds of a Feather



One more card made with the set L'Amour. Don't you just love the sweet face on this bird? I love the heart swirly background and the hearts on her tail too. The heart tucked under her wing and the one on the ground are actually the wings from the butterfly in the set stamped onto the Chatterbox designer paper, then cut out. I took a craft knife and made a little slit above her wing to tuck one in. The bird is colored with Copic Marker Y21. I added the light spots with the Copic Blending Pen. The sentiment is raised up on Dimensionals. I also added Beeswax Shimmerz Paint to the hearts on her tail and the flowers on the hearts.

Supplies:

Stamps: L'Amour (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Paper: Prism, Neenah White, Chatterbox Designer Paper (Tangerine Beach Blossoms).
Ink: Ranger Distress Soot Black, Copic Markers, Versamark.
Other: Shimmerz Beeswax, Nesties, Cuttlebug, Taffeta Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Dimensionals, Scor-pal.

Today was the first day with the new bus schedule. The kids had to be ready to catch the bus at 7:17. We live less than five minutes from the school..... it's CRAZY. I could see them being on the bus that long if we lived out of town. I predict, there will be a lot of "missed the bus" days.

Have a great Monday everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
