Sweet Birdie

Hello friends,

I hope you had a terrific Tuesday!  I'm back today with a sweet little birdie card.  This stamp is by Red Lead Paper Works.  I believe I purchased it early last year.  

I've used the Spellbinders Labels Eight and Decorative Labels Eight dies to cut some beautiful patterned paper by Manuela Zimmermann.  She has some of the most elegant designs.  

The bird and definition were stamped in StazOn Timber Brown.  Prismacolor pencils with Gamsol were used to color the bird. 

A tag was created with the Sing Sweet stamp and cut out by hand and popped up.  I added a Stampin' Up vintage button with linen thread.

Do you have any Red Lead stamps?  As I type this the snow is gently falling.  I'm hoping the ground will be covered in white by the morning.

Today I am joining ...

I love your bird card, so pretty and soft. We sure got the snow, tons of it! I love it more than ever now since I don't have to drive in it for work. I love the red lead web site. Never ordered from there yet, but I get so excited when their emails pop into my box. The colors are so vibrant. I love their style. Thank you for visiting me. So nice seeing your blog too. Enjoy the snow!

Really like that you used the brown Stazon ink - looks so soft. You have really dressed up this cut little bird with the lovely layers too.

How did you use the Gamsol for coloring on this bird card? This is a NEW concept to me. Thanks, Katie in California
