A Tweet

This is the fourth and final card from my recent Veranda workshop.

I must say I sure do like bird stamps and paper these days. This is our bird from the A Tweet set. I inked her up in Juniper; stamped off the first ink; then rolled her in Chocolate ink to get this effect.

My next all time favourite type of stamp is any kind of flourish stamp. This large background flourish is from our new Cherished Flourishes and is stamped in Vineyard Berry. The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate and then again in Vineyard Berry.

The tiny flowers are stamped in second generation, Vineyard Berry ink and then cut out. Each has a mini sparkle added and they are on folded glue dots. I like using glue dots this way to give a bit of movement to images, but not the rigid appearance pop dots give.
As you can see, my bird is on pop dots overtop of another stamped bird. This is so the bird has feet. I've placed the one mat under the ribbon just for a different look.
All supplies are Close To My Heart.
