A Little Birdy Told Me

I'm having some fun with the "A Little Birdy Told Me." What a cute little set this is. This card is ok, not great. I am a bit disappointed in the decorative paper behind the bird. I thought it would show a bit more. Seems like a waste now when I look at it. I could have just gotten by with white card stock!!! LOL

I used Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White and Basic Black card stock. I also used the Scallop punch. Oh my is that ever a fabulous tool to have! The words just didn't seem to fill the space well enough so I added one of the new rhinestone brads to it. I should have moved it down just a little bit more but it's done now and not much I can do about it unless I want to rip it all apart. Under it I have Dimensionals and those things on top of decorative paper and you know it will rip. I added some holes to the upper right corner using the Mat Pack. Another must have tool!!! I never realized how crooked I got things until I started using this and seeing what "straight" really looked like!!! Maybe a trip to the eye doctor is in order!!!!! LOL

I used the Taken with Teal marker and a blender pen. The paper the image is on is just Whisper White, not watercolor paper. SO you do need to be careful you don't work an area too long or it will wear down the paper and pill. NOT a good thing. Once this happens you need to stop and often you end up having to start over.

This card was made entirely with Stampin' Up! products. Click here to see more.

I thank you SO much for stopping by,

Wow! I really like that color combo Wanda! It's grea! I like the DP behind the bird though - it's a little something extra!
