Here's a favorite!!
Today I am sharing another card that uses one of my favorite Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. This Birds, Branches and Birdhouse Stamp was released this winter at CHA. One this card I stamped the image onto white cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. I then sponged lightly around the edges with Broken China Distress Ink for the blue sky. I used the Cheery Lynn window die for the cut out. With this die, it only cuts out the window panes, so I trimmed around the sides to create the window frame. This window also has 16 panes, but I wanted more of an open window concept. I cut out a couple of the panes...now I only have 4 panes. This allows more of the image to appear. I then sponged around the window frame with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. For the background, I embossed it with the Tim Holtz brick wall embossing folder on brown cardstock. Because I wanted the bricks to stand out better, I used a white Memories Dye Ink pad to lightly rub over the embossing. Then I popped up the window frame over the imae and cut around the image so it was the exact shape as the window. I used the PPRS floral border die to create the delicate border, but added a strip of pink cardstock behind the border to have more color. Then I cut out some of the flowers with the die. Stamp the matching clear flowers over the cut outs. Color with Copic Markers and pop up over some spray of leaves. Finally add some Candi to sweeten your creation!
