Hearts Rule

I had fun creating a little roost for the birds using the rulers from the Whimsical Melange Plate. Love the effect and texture when sponged and distressed. There even is a fun hole in the ruler that fit the punch perfectly. My birds are busy untangling a piece of twine with a few hearts.

  1. Stamp ruler multiple times using black archival ink on ivory cardstock.
  2. Sponge with yellow, orange and brown dye inks. 
  3. Distress edges using distressing tool. 
  4. Piece together a staggered background.
  5. Stamp little birds randomly on background using black ink. 
  6. Stamp birds on ivory cardstock using black ink. Watercolor with green and reds. 
  7. Punch hearts from music sheet and spray with red glimmer mist. 
  8. Stamp sentiment on ivory cardstock using black ink. Sponge background with yellow and orange dye ink. 
  9. Cut out sentiment and mount on black cardstock. 
  10. Assemble. 
Have a wonderful weekend!
