Birds alive

I LOVE this bird from a set by Penguin Pants Rubber stamps

I stamped and embossed in black on vellum then colored the back. then I paper pierced it and connected the dots with white gel pen. background is a feather stamp from the set as well.

the detail in the stamp is awesome.

So what do you think of the top two?? the one on the left looks off doesn't it? well that was my first one and I was going to adhere it with some vellum tape that I had in my drawer WHO knows how old that stuff is. well it left a yellowy look on the card so I tried to save it and added to the entire back of the vellum and I HATE it so had to redo the whole thing and that is what the right card is.

so lesson learned use up those supplies before they go bad.

It's so pretty! Just the kind of "grown up" stamping I am trying to force myself to try. I always lean toward the cutesy stuff. I LOVE elegant cards just have to push myself harder to produce them!

I got my PIF package today and WOW....THANK YOU SO MUCH! I have had it laying out on the couch all day just admiring it:) I LOVE LOVE LOVE the shimmery red cardstock, the stamp set and well...just all of it! I am SUCH a fibers and ribbon junkie! I have decided that instead of posting my PIF on my blog I am going to make small goodie bags for the 6 other girls going on my retreat this weekend. Four of them are papercrafting newbies. I'll post pics on my blog. Thanks again! Hugs, M
