When I first say this stamp set "A Happy Thing", I didn't think I would like it or even really use it but one night I decided what the heck. The card base is made from Soft Suede card stock, the image is stamped on Whisper white with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I actually stamped the image twice. I did this because I used my blending tool and Tim Holtz distress inks. I used Broken China, Mustard Seed, and Spice Marmalade to color my birdie. I colored in the beak with the Spice Marmalade Distress Marker. I blended the colors on the bird starting with Broken China, then I blended on some Spiced Marmalade, and finished with Mustard Seed. The "rainbow" card stock underneath is the Simply Irresistible paper that was only available until March 31, 2015. I used the same colors on the Simply Irresistible paper that I did on my bird. The reason I love this paper is because it is because embossed resisted without the extra steps. Once you have added the color, take a tissue and wipe away the excess which is how you end up with the bright white polka dots. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I framed the image with Blackberry Bliss card stock as well as the sentiment which I punched out with the wide oval punch and trimmed it with Blackberry Bliss. I added Basic Clear Rhinestones to the "points" of the oval. I thought this turned out very pretty. Thanks for stopping by. Come and stamp with me.
