Brayered So Saffron ink on the bottom of the card stock.
Brayered More Mustard ink at the bottom of the card stock, not covering the So Saffron ink entirely.
Brayered River Rock ink at the top of the card stock.
Brayered Daffodil Delight ink at the top of the card stock not covering the River Rock ink entirely.
Loaded the wonderfully Worn Background stamp with More mustard ink and dabbed the card stock face down onto the stamp design. This gives you a really random pattern.
Continued to do the same thing, only with Cajun Craze ink and then Soft Suede ink.
Sponged Soft Suede ink over the bottom half of the card stock, lightly.
Using the Stampin’ Up Bird punch (item number 117191) punched the bird out of Basic Black card stock.
Adhered the bird and the wing to the card stock and added knobby legs to the bird with a Basic Black marker.
Using the negative part of the punched card stock as a mask, sponged Basic Gray ink inside the bird mask.
Added legs to the shadow bird lightly using a Basic Black marker and connecting them to the originals birds feet.
Sponged just a bit of Basic Black ink at the bottom of the card stock.
Stamped the writing from the Stampin’ Up set Charming (item #116519) using Soft Suede ink.
Cut 7, 1/2″ Basic Black card stock strips.
Held them together in groups and cut one end off at an angle.
Layered a 4.75″ x 6.25″ Soft Suede card stock panel on a 5″ x 6.5″ Basic Black panel and sponged Cajun Craze ink around the edges of the card stock.
Layered my Main image panel on a 4 1/8″ x 4 5/8″ Basic Black panel. Assembled the card front. Adhered the Basic Black card stock strips to the card front and cut the ends flush with the card front.
Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
May your day be Golden!
