Blue Bird of Happiness Card


Hi Chris here and today I would like to share with you my pretty little blue bird card. Ain't he just sweet!  To recreate this card you will need:

Sin City Stamps Supplies:
Blue Sheer Ribbon

Other Supplies: Pacon Mixed Media paper, Modeling Paste(Liquidtex), Tim Holtz Distress Inks(Pumice Stone, Tea Dye, Walnut Stain, Ground Espresso, Prima patterned paper, Tim Holtz Embossing Diffuser Plates, foam tape, flower.

After cutting a piece of mixed media paper the size of your card. I applied modeling paste over my stencil.  I purposely left the surface a little rough for extra texture



I then lightly ink my bricks with Pumice Stone Distress ink,  I then continued layering Distress Ink in Tea Dye, Walnut Stain and Ground Espresso, to get the brick to the color I wanted. Once I was satisfied I attached my brick background to my card base.  

I then cut my patterned paper to the size of my card.  I used my  Tim Holtz Embossing Diffuser Plates as a template to cut the center oval from my card front.



After cutting out the oval window I attached the card front to the card using foam tape, and added the bird cage and my blue bird. 

 I added a small flower and a ribbon bow to finish off my card.  You can see what a difference those little touches make to the finished card.
