Birdbath 06569
On my first card, I’m using this oh so sweet little Bird Bath image. If you’ll notice the window die cut on my next card, you’ll see that I used the window cut outs for this card. I put temporary tape on the backs, pushed them close together to stamp the image then attached them to a second set of cut outs, colored them and attached them to a white panel. The greeting strip was a leftover & I liked the shape so I stamped the words on it & edged it w/ a yellow Copic. The same yellow Copic was used to make the yellow layers. I didn’t have any plain yellow this color so I went around the edges of white panels w/ the Copic. A few more layers of dp and a few tiny white buttons finish it. These are the Copics I used.

Birdhouse WIndow cu 06566The next card uses the pretty little Birdhouse with Sign image. It was stamped, masked, then the branch & leaf were stamped & everything was colored in with Copics. I stamped an extra sign, colored it then added the Home on top.

Two window were die cut out of heavy white card stock, stacked together for dimension and attached on top of the scene. I added a punched teacup, two punched birds and a little fussy cut bouquet (from the Tandem Bicycle set) added in the teacup. The Wood background was stamped with gray ink onto cream card stock then just a hint of color was added w/ lt yellow & lt blue Copics. These are the Copics I used.
