Hello Friend

Today I made this card using the Lawn Fawn set Feathered Friends that was created especially for Simon Says Stamp Stamptember celebration last year.  I stamped the tree limb using Memento’s Rich Cocoa and colored with E55, E57, and E59.  Next, I stamped the leaves using Memento’s Cottage Ivy and colored with YG23, YG25, and YG17.  The birds were stamped using Tuxedo Black by Memento and then colored using R35, R29, R37, and BG45, BG15, and BG49 respectively.  Next I took some B00 various ink and placed it on a small acrylic block, mixed some colorless blender in it and then took a small brush to put some color around the edges of the image to break up all of the remaining white.  The birds were die-cut using a Spellbinders small circle and the mat was cut using a Spellbinders large die.  The black panel and designer papers were cut using the Mama Elephant Stitched rectangle from the Peek a frame set.  The script die cut is from Simon Says stamp and was cut from Hammermill cardstock that was colored using the same red copic markers as the bird and then stacked on three additional cuts of the sentiment in black.  The word friend is from the same stamp set and is heat set using white Judikins embossing powder.  The final touches were a few sequins from the Let’s Polka pack by Lawn Fawn.

I am entering this card in The Paper Players SketchChallenge #229.
