I've mentioned many times that I'm a huge nature lover. Birds are right at the top of my list, so naturally I'm drawn to bird stamp images. This Nesting image (Inkadinkado), that I got from Stamper's Dream, is so realistic to me. I loved it the first time I saw it. And then while making this card, I found it was the easiest image to color. Many stampers having been using their copics on Kraft paper lately, so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm happy to say, I'm very pleased with the results. Kraft is very easy to color on, and I love the vintage feel it gave this card. After coloring, I coated the image with three layers of Detail Clear Embossing Powder (JudiKins), put it in the freezer for 10 minutes, cracked the glaze and rubbed Walnut Stain (Ranger Distress Ink) into the cracks. I then framed the image with this Breaking Free Summertime Frame Diecut (My Mind's Eye), and embellished it with flowers, flourishes and ribbon. Everything is ink distressed with Walnut Stain (Ranger Distress Ink).
The weekend is just around the corner. Hope your week is going well!
