Hi everyone! I hope you are doing well today. I have some Birdie cards today using the New Paint Strokes Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs March Release. I will have supplies listed and a coupon for you down below.
I knew when I saw the Paint Strokes Stencil that they could work as a nest for my birdie. The first thing I did was cut out my birdies with white cardstock. I ink blended them with Vintage Photo distress oxide ink, Black Soot Distress Oxide ink, and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink. I glued them together with liquid glue. I added some foam tape under the wings before adhering it to my birds. I used some egg dies from a Easter stamp/die set from Studio Calico. I copic colored the eggs with a BG01 marker. I cut out some white panels with a double stitched rectangle die.
I used the paint strokes stencil and turned it upside down to make my nests with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink. I ink blended my panels with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. I then used a craft knife and carefully cut a slit in the nests to add my eggs. I placed my panels in my misti and stamped sentiments from Gina K Designs in the same ink colors used. I glued my birds and added some Pops Of Color from Scrapbook.com in Champagne. Lastly, I used a black gelly roll pen for the birdies eyes. I hope you like my cards, they were so much fun to make and so glad to think of other ways to use the stencil. Use my code VonFan10 for 10% off Amazing Stencils at A Colorful Life Designs.
