Fall Bird Card

Hello and thanks for coming by!

(Click on images to enlarge.)

I made this card by first die cutting the label shape, then stamping around with my leaf peg stamps.  I used a variety of colors and the rock n roll technique for these tiny stamps.  

Then I stamped the birds.  These birds are one of my first stamp purchases way back when I got obsessed with stamping.  I love the size of them and that I can still use them today.  I just fussy cut them and sponged on distress inks.  I used a sketch from SCS to pull it all together.  

Supplies: Rubber Stamp Tapestry Seasonal Splendor peg stamps, Prima Bird stamp set, Avery Elle Pigment inks (Jungle, LemonGrass, Celery, Mimosa, Vino, Cherry, Linen), Versafine Olympia Green ink, Distress ink Tea Dye, Fired Brick and Frayed Burlap, K&Co Tim Coffey Fall matstack, textured cardstock and pearls from my stash.

I would love to participate in these challenges:
ModSquad Challenge Blog - For the Birds
Inkspirational - Use 5 or more stamps
Tuesday Throwdown - Leaves
