Crazy Birds

Hi there.  I have a masculine card today for a friend who is 60 and I was very lucky recently to win this fun set of Pink Ink stamps called Crazy Birds so I decided to christen it for this card.

As I don't use kraft card very often I thought I would today, and I stamped the three bird images using Versamark and heat embossed with WOW Metallic Copper Embossing Powder.  I then coloured the images using my Inktense Pencils without any added water, and added some ink blending around the edges using Distress Inks - Tea Dye and then Ground Espresso, and I also added more blue around the bird with Salty Ocean DI, to add to the pencil colouring I had already done.  Just a tip which I expect a lot of you will know that by colouring with white first before adding the colour it helps to neutralise the brown and allows the true colour to come through.  I finished by adding the sentiment and the die cut number using Versafine Vintage Sepia Ink and then I heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss EP.  I also added a blue mat before adhering it to a 7" x 5" kraft card base.

Thank you for visiting me here today and I hope you'll come back again soon.

I am entering the following challenges:

Happy Little Stampers October Birthday Challenge - Anything Goes.
Critter Crazy Challenge - Anything Goes with a Featured Critter.

Such fun images on your friend's birthday card, Pat!! Love the copper embossing and your colouring with the pencils. The sponging of the background also adds lots of colour. xx

Those are some crazy birds. Such a fun card. I've never tried using my inktense pencils without watercolouring- I need to try that xx

A great set of stamps to have won and they've been used to clever effect on the kraft card, something a bit different. A super fun card.

Love the use of blue on the kraft, it highlights the bird so prettily! The copper embossing really goes well with the kraft. A great card with these fun images!
