Floral Birds

I have a card for Anna's Craft Cupboard to share today.

I used this beautiful bird from the American Crafts, All the Good Things collection by Vicki Boutin.  The stamp set is called Floral Birds.

It was fun dreaming up colours this bird could be, but I went with my favourite combo of blues, aquas and purples :)

For the sentiment, I used the MFT Love You Die again.  There are just so many ways to use it!
I decided to die cut it from white card and then cut it out to just use the "You".
I left it like a stencil so that you can see the watercolour background through the negative space.
I white embossed a sentiment from the Up in the Air set by MFT, masking off the "you" and glued them together onto the card.

I decided to create a background for the bird by smooshing some Tim Holtz Distress Inks with water onto watercolour paper.  
I used Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass and Broken China.

I also added some jewels from the Jillibean Soup Watercolour with Shapes Shaker Card Sequin Pack.
These are very pretty and were just the perfect colour to work with the rest of the card and give it a little something special.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges :

Fashionable Stamping - One for the girls
Southern Girls - Nature
Word Art Wednesday - sentiment
The Cat's Pajamas - Animals

Thanks for dropping by today :)


  1. Hi Kathy. I'm a 'blue' person too. I love the smooched background and the bird contrasts with it beautifully.
