There's a new stamp set in the InkOn3 shop and it covers all of your bases! There are flowers, twigs, lots of sentiments, and of course a little birdie!
I saw the Little Birdie Stamp Set and immediately wanted to create a Christmas cardinal card! I wanted a simple background, so I grabbed the Leafy Forest Stencil and Goddess Green Atelier Ink. As I blended the ink over the stencil I realized that my background was looking too "spring." The Goddess Green Atelier Ink is a gorgeous green color, but a little too bright for my Christmas background. I added a little bit of Twiggy Brown Atelier Ink over the Goddess Green Atelier Ink and the result was a pretty olive green colored background. Perfect!
I used Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink to stamp the bird, branch, and berries from the Little Birdie Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers. I used scissors to trim them out and added them to the card with a mix of liquid adhesive and foam tape. I keep my Liquid Pixie Dust in a Small Fine Tip Water Brush Pen and added shimmer to all of the red areas of my coloring.
