Watching the birds

Sorry I haven't posted anything lately but it is a hectic time of year which we all love.  I finally have a little time for myself so thought I would post a card.  Thanks to everyone for visiting my blog and I appreciate all of the comments.  I used a Memory Box stamp with this card and after coloring, I glittered the birds.  The background paper is by Basic Grey and was in my stash.  The pine needles die is from Impression Obsession, the cat die from Cheery Lynn, and the window die from Memory Box.  Enjoy.

I love doing the sky areas of cards but haven't really gotten into it too much.  There are so many beautiful colors of inks out there to choose from.  On this card, I used an old retired SU ink  which is Cool Caribbean  I sponged it on white glossy cardstock leaving splotches of white cloud showing.  I then stamped the limbs on using an old stamp set from Papertrey Ink.  I then punched out a red cardinal using a Martha Stewart punch.  I embossed the cherry cobbler cardstock from SU and layered that onto a white card.  This was taught the other week at Paper Ink on the downtown mall and hopefully we will have enough people for another class.  Enjoy!
