Creation Station Blog Hop - Bird is the Word
Hello stamping friends! So glad the wind has died down finally here on the east coast. A few pieces of tin off the barn roofs, sticks galore on the ground, a couple of boards on the cattle bunk line shifted and broke, but otherwise we are lucky (knock on wood) that we never lost power and it wasn't much worse. Speaking of Mother Nature, today's blog hop is for the birds. Literally. It was the perfect opportunity for me to ink up our Bird Banter stamp set.
Up first are two little birdies ready to party. I used the Sale-A-Bration Celebration Thinlets to help not only make a fun background but also part of the focal point as well. These birds also were perfect to let me get out our new Stampin' Blends and them a whirl. Love the softness that these new alcohol based markers add to our images.
And then this guy decided to celebrate all on his own! Using the masking technique, I created a bunch of balloons for this guy to deliver to his friend high up in the branches. Again I used various Stampin' Blends to give this scene color. I used a sponge, Soft Sky ink pad and a handcut cloud stencil to make the sky come alive. I even had fun offsetting the different layers to the left to spice it up a little.
Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my birds! Now hop along and see what creative genius Elizabeth has with hers. Happy Stamping!
