Hello all and welcome back to the blog. Today starts a new challenge over at Stampotique's Designers Challenge Blog
Our lovely hostess is the wonderful Sue Davies and she is asking us to make something With Animals or Birds.
I decided that I wanted to make a card for my parents anniversary. Their anniversary isn't until New Years Eve but I figured I'd work on it early.
Birds have always been the theme for their anniversaries and my Dad has this tradition of giving my mom a set of two birds every year. Usually they are little sculptures or ceramic figures but she has one for every year they have been married. I think it's such a sweet tradition.
I just recently got this stamp and as soon as I saw it It reminded me of my parents.
I used Stampotique Stamps
Treemates - by Artist Kylie DiOrio
Kylie has some wonderful bird stamps and I just love them all
Two Hearts..One Love - By Carol's Collection
Carol has some really awesome sayings in her stamp collection
Here is my card
I used watercolor paper and stamped the image using black archival ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder
I then used my Derwent watercolor pencils to color the entire image.
I hope when the time comes to give it to my parents that they love it.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
