Pastel Acetate Birdies

Good Morning, little oversight on my part with this post!  It went live at 6.30am with no text just the pics, oops...

This is an 8x8 card using a Splodge A Mask and Distress inks for the background.
I made a small panel for the topper using the faux silk technique, inked & stamped it.
I stamped & embossed the Crafty Individuals birds onto Heat Resistant Acetate, and made some extra leaves to extend the branches, joined them with the little flowers.
The birdcage is Spellbinders.
The 'Dream a Little Dream' banner was made by stamping and chopping the top line of the background stamp used.
And the question already asked in the comment box, how did I colour the birds?  I used Liquid Pearls with a cocktail stick.

Hope you like it!

  28. Maria, what a gorgeous card. I love the colours you have chosen.

    Could I ask a question on behalf of myself and some friends. We have got into using our Inkylicious brushes for effects like brayering and we were wondering whether we could use a Splodge Away Mat with these brushes or not. We would apprciate your advice. Best wishes, Kym xxx
