December Verve Sneak Peek ~ Wordy Birds

I'm so excited. Verve is having another release tomorrow, and the images are just the sweetest ever!! And again, the variety is amazing!! I'm peeking the Wordy Birds set today. It comes with two different sized birds along with 5 beautifully fonted sentiments.

I stamped the bird twice with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored him with copics. I cut out the wing of the second image, and glued it to the first image to give it a bit of depth. I mounted him on a flourish branch (Sizzix) that is covered with some Inkssentials Opaque White dots. The base is a rhinestone covered lace doily die (MFT), that I got from my dear friend Frances for my birthday. And the dp is from My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy True Blue 6x6 Paper Pad.

That about sums up my card for today. Be sure to see what the other divas are sharing today. You won't be disappointed. These girls have some serious skills!!

The flourish and the doily really make the little red bird pop! Red was the perfect color for him! And the bling of the rhinestones makes it both flashy and elegant at the same time. Thanks for the sneak peek.
