Blue Birds

Hello. I have been so busy, and I have a feeling life is not going to slow down until after the holidays. I did manage to make a card to share with you. I have been playing around with some of my digital images, and here is what I made with a new digi image from McMahon Five Designs.

Aren't these two birdies adorable? I couldn't resist them. I printed them out on Canson 90lb Watercolor paper, and colored them with my Stampin Up Markers. I usually use 140lb watercolor paper like what Stampin Up sells, but I was afraid that it was too thick to go through my inkjet printer, so I am saving the heavier stuff for use with regular stamps. I cut the image out with some Large Oval Nestibilities, mounted on a Scalloped Oval Nestibility. The card base is Bashful Blue, the DSP is from one of the Stampin Up Hostess 6x6 DSP pads, the blue sticky gems are from Michael's, the flower is from Prima, and the sentiment is from the Stampin Up Hostess Level II stamp set called "Kind and Caring Thoughts". I also sponged around the edges of the image oval with Bashful Blue ink. It looks more prominent in person. I have a little icon over on the right side of my blog for McMahon Five, if you want to see this image and others, just place your cursor over it and click, and it will take you to their store.

Until next time............... Blessings, Lisa
