Love Birds

Happy Wednesday and thank you for visiting!!

Did you play along yet in our Penny Black and More challenge this month? If not, or if you'd like to add another creation (you can play along up to 3 times), there is still a little bit time to play along. As usual, we  have some wonderful prizes to give away from our very generous sponsors.
We made it really easy this month too - anything goes - as long as your focal point has been hand stamped.


I created these two note cards using Penny Black's "So Very Much" stamp set. 
On the above card I used a circle mask and then inked the cad stock using turquoise ink. Next I stamped the birds using black ink and the little flourish using turquoise ink. Simply layered the card front onto some black card stock and then adhered it onto the turquoise card base.

 For the above card I masked the edges using washi tape, then inked white card stock using distress inks. I place another piece of washi tape on the bottom portion, to mask off the area I wanted to be brown. The birds here were  heat embossed using white embossing powder. I used the same heart flourish here too (because it's so pretty :-)
After removing the washi tape mask I added a strip of designer paper and some twine to finish it off.
These cards measure 4x4 inches. 

Hope you liked my cards today.

Thanks for stopping by!
I'll be back later today with another post.
