Friendly Bird

OK - these colors may look familiar! This card was made with the colors from the color challenge (Baja Breeze, Ruby Red, Whisper White) and the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS123) at I was inspired by this card of sumtoy's. Isn't this a cute layout? I really liked the pieced background.

I stamped the bird from the SU stamp set Friends 24-7 with Basic Brown. Now here is the tricky part and if you look very closely you can see what I did. I inked just the ends of the limb and stamped them at the end of the first stamped image to extend the branch to the edge of the paper.

I used reinkers and aquapainter brushes to paint the image then covered it with versamark pen and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged with Baja Breeze and sponged the edges with Not Quite Navy. I used Urban Oasis pattern paper pieced on Whisper White cs for the background.

The flowers are from the SU pretties kit. I painted them with Ruby Red and Baja Breeze reinkers then layered with a button. Hint: I attached the flowers with a brad and adhered the button to the brad with a glue dot. This gave it a more secure hold.
