"English Robin"

Wednesday, April 14, 2010
Well it's spring, and the birds are a chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the hot weather is almost here. But, who cares as long as my airconditioner is working.

"English Robin"

Todays card is a very simple card and would be good to send just about anyone. The stamp set is from "Inkadinkado" called "English Robin". Very cute set, and easy to color with Copic markers. The sentiment stamp is from "Great Impressions" .

After coloring the bird image I had to come up with a different background. The background paper was made by stamping a piece of printer paper with a script background stamp. I stamped it in Burnt Sienna. After it was stamp, I crumpled up the paper then straightened it back out. The crumpled paper paper was then rubbed with the Distress ink pad called "Old Paper" this gives it an aged look. The edges were hand torn and brushed with another Distress Ink pad called "Walnut Stain" this gives the edges a burnt look. I also used the "Walnut Stain" to edge the image and the sentiment mats.The scrolls in the upper left and lower right corners wer cut using a Provocraft die.

The colors used for this image;

Bird; E11,E15,Y17,YR23
Berries; R24

As I said before, it's a very simple card that can be used for many occasions.

Hope you enjoy my efforts. Your comments are always appreciated.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!
