I stamped the outlines of the birds from the Love Birds Stamp Set with Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink repeatedly on my background until my cardstock was full of little birdies. I used the layering images for the birds and stamped them with Marilyn Red Atelier Ink to mimic the look of cardinals. There are layering stamps to fill in the tails and wings as well, but I decided to use some shimmer watercolor for a bit of sparkle. I added some gold watercolor spatters to finish off the background.
I stamped a greeting from the Holiday Wreath Stamp Set three times with Juicy Watermark Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Gold Rush Fine Detail Embossing Powder. I trimmed each of the sentiments into small strips and popped them up near the top center of my card.
