I'm really happy to pull out the Brushed Birds set from Papertrey Ink and use it for the Make It Monday Challenge.
Lizzie instructed us to use a stencil to pull the eye towards the focal point on our card. It was easy to do and it does make a difference. I'm always happy to do some ink blending. I also used a sponge to dab inks onto the the bird images. Each bird has 3 stamps to layer and sponging the inks allowed me to blend in additional colors for a soft look. The MISTI was helpful for the multiple stamping.
Also new is the Shape Shifters Oval 1 Die, and I used all three layers. Under the pretty oval with the tiny cut outs, I cut an oval of white card stock inked with Nuvo Mousse. What a sheen it adds, as you can see in the close up.
The birds are snuggled among die cut leaves and a banner with the sentiment. I love that this can be used for any kind of occasion I may need later on.
That's it for me today, I hope you'll be back again soon. Have a great evening.
Delight in your craft
