First Feathers

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I was so excited that I found a little time this weekend to ink up this new stamp from Holly Berry House. It's called First Feathers and I think it's just adorable!

I stamped the image three times on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped images wee colored using Tombow Markers and a damp paint brush.

I placed the bottom image on a panel of Baby Blue Prismatics light which was cut and embossed using my Labels One Nestabilities . The brown layer behind it is Suede Brown Prismatics medium.

The larger flowers were made using my Martha Stewart Hydrangea and 3-in-1 Hydrangea punches. The small flower was made with my Punch Bunch Floral Lilacs & Daphne punch. The green leaves are also from that punch. The flower centers are Chocolate Pearls from Kaiser Craft.

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Wisteria paper pad. The ribbon is 5/8" brown sheer by May Arts.

This last picture is so you can see how much dimension there is on this card with the popped up bird and flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
