At CHA last month, I finally had the chance to meet most of the Unity Stamp Company team and thanks to their kind generosity, came home with a few of their darling stamp sets that I'd been wanting to try. I chose to use this sweet bird from the Hey Chick! set and combined it with some of my favorite Webster's Pages paper. This week's CPS#102 made it all happen (I flipped the sketch just a little)!
I stamped the bird, using Unity's fabulous & unique acrylic/wood mounting system, with Memento Rich Cocoa ink onto Neenah Classic Natural White cardstock and colored her with Copic markers BG13, R39 & YG95, to match colors in the patterned papers. Clear Copic Spica glitter pen highlights all the red coloring on the bird. I loved the feel of the wood handle on Unity's acrylic block!
I made a frame with the Cuttlebug Concentric Hearts die, placed it over my colored bird and machine stitched the two layers together. A sparkly blue button accents this focal piece. It is popped up over a layer of Webster's Pages Hello Beautiful (Love Note) paper that was cut with pinking scissors and matted with Prism Rose Dark cardstock. These layers were also machine stitched and popped up over the card's base layer of Webster's Reflections of Nature (Chestnut Mocha).
The blue accent strip (Webster's Inspired-Peacefulness) at the bottom was punched with Fiskar's All-A-Fleur Embossing Border punch. This little bird is headed out my door to wish a sweet friend a happy Valentine week and I hope you all have a good one as well!
