Clearly Besotted | "Some Birdie Loves You" Happy Heart Day 2019


Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a good day.

Today I thought I would share a card I created using the "Some Birdie Loves You" stamp set by Clearly Besotted two ways. The card itself is the same, but I've changed the colour palette to get two different looks.


To begin, I stamped the toucan on right and masked it off, I then stamped the toucan on the left, masked it and stamped the branch from Mama Elephant so that they would have something to sit on. I didn't want to create a mask for the branch because I'm super lazy, so I very carefully sponged Distress Inks around the birds and the foliage, trying to get as little ink as possible in the branch itself. 


I removed the masks and stamped the hearts at the top and the greeting using Memento Tuxedo black ink, then coloured all the images with Copic markers.

To finish off the panels, I used clear Wink of Stella over the beaks and the hearts and put Glossy Accents over the hearts as well. As a finishing touch, I used my white gel pen to add some highlights to the birds, leaves and some dots in the centre of each of the flowers. I adhered each panel to a piece of coordinating cardstock then mounted the lot the the front of a standard A2 sized card base.

I hope you like today's card(s) and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and on YouTube! Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
