Papertrey Tuesday Brushed Birds

Hello all, here I am popping in at the end of the day with a card to share with you. I'm calling this post Papertrey Tuesday. 
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.

This is such a sweet looking card. I like how you stenciled only two corners and matched that color on the bottom of the bird.

You had me at the birds! They're sooooo pretty in the sweet colors you chose. Beautiful background that does, indeed, draw the eye. Lovely sheen with the Nuvo mousse. There are so many fun things to play with!
