Hi, it's Maureen here with a happy little card for you on this Saturday morning. The new Happy Birds stamp set definitely puts a big smile on my face. What about you?
I'm a big fan of the clean and graphic look. I love to contrast black and white with pops of color, like I've done here. I started by die cutting a piece of white card stock using the Sunshine Layers die. Then I blended Distress Inks over it to make a bright background. Knowing that the rest of my card would be all black and white, I really wanted this background to pop. I stamped the sentiment and images and then die cut them and added them to the panel with foam tape. Before finishing the card, I used a Copic Multiliner pen to draw stitch lines around the focal panel. This simple technique helped to bring the whole design together.
I almost forgot to mention this little detail...I wanted my bird to look like he was flying or jumping for joy, so I flipped through my WPlus9 stamp set and found this stamp from the Festive Greetings stamp set. I think it's perfect !
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a happy day!
