The First Birds of Spring

Greetings! Yvonne here with a card I made using the Bluebird plate from Artistic Outpost. I have loved birds my entire life, and several years back when birds hit the stamping scene, I was immediately drawn to this beautiful plate of stamps, which have stood the test of time and remained among my very favorite. The embossed background was distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and the images were stamped with Black StazOn Ink onto Mushroom card stock and also distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The birds were colored in lightly with a light blue Copic Maker. Embellishments include burlap material, vintage blue buttons, vintage seam binding and ivory and black ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Yvonne, Guest Designer

My all-time favorite set from AO and I love what you have done with it - the sepia tones, the burlap, the metal - an all around gem you have created here!
