|a little birdie hello|
For this card I used stamps from Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Burbs, Fly Free and Sophie's Sentiments. I was inspired to use some distress inks after watching the first couple Distress Inks Lessons Britta has started on her blog. I lucked out at Michael's today and all the ink pads were on sale! (40% off) So I picked up a couple more colors. I used Broken China to stamp the swirl background (Hero Arts Magical Background) and distress the edges of light cardstock and Tea Dye to distress the background piece. And I learned how to tie a bow! Yay! I also used my new Copic 'atyou Spica' Glitter pens to outline the bird and sentiment.
I just love using glitter, but I haven't use it in awhile so I thought this colorful cupcake could use some sparkle. The birthday cupcake stamp is from Hero Arts, the sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Sophie's Sentiments and the tiny cupcake stamped for the background is from Stampin' Up! I used Martha Stewart iridescent glitter for accents on the cupcake and my new Lacey Circles nestabilities die for the purple circle.
