Hello, Birdie!

This sweet little bird from Natural Beauty, an older set from Stampin' Up!, was waiting in my box of stamped images.  I colored him with Copics, trimmed with a die cut, and stamped a sentiment from Inspired By Stamping's Creative Tags in the corner.  


That was layered onto two more die cuts, and the frames decorated with Liquid Pearls and tied with some twine.


One of my fave background stamps is also an old one from Stampin' Up!:  Filigree.  After assembling two pieces of patterned papers from K & Co., I stamped Filigree in Old Olive over both of them.  You can see it best in the photo below, since it's not as visible on the brown striped paper.


Thank you so much for your visit!

Your coloring is so fabulous, love the beautiful colors you used and the dp is so perfect for this. I'm a bit envious of your liquid pearls. They are perfect. For some reason, mine always collapse, lol.

I love using up those stamped and filed away images. I'm working on it. This birdie is so sweet and pretty. I do love birds and all nature images. The Filigree looks so pretty on the DP. I still have that stamp, too, along with all the other SU! BG stamps I collected. This was one of my favorites. A very warm and pretty card, Colleen!

You framed this beautifully with that gorgeous die. It makes the bird feel wistful and retrospect. Love your gorgeous work.
