Another Little Birdie
Well, I just can't get off my nature kick! I have been watching the birds at my feeder all weekend, and so I just had to make another bird card!! Again, this image is from Garden Pleasures. It is for Tammy's Stamp Happy Sketch, found here. I turned the sketch to make it fit my image better. It is also for the Inspiration Challenge, found here. I thought of the hat image when I saw this cow. I know, it's a stretch, but that's what I thought! The vanilla layer was stamped in very vanilla ink with Cornish Heritage Farm's Leaves #3 Backgrounder, which I have hardly ever used, then dabbed with a cotton ball and Barely Banana pastels for a nice,soft subtle look. The Bordering Blue panel was also stamped with the backgrounder in BB as well. The rest is pretty straightforward, I'll list the recipe at the end. Thanks for looking!
