Happy Birdday

Hello! Today I have a card over on the Hero Arts blog and it features a brand new stamp set from the 2014 catalogue called Missing You. This awesome set is sold in aid of Operation Write Home, and I just LOVE the stamps in it. All of them.
For this card, I used a fun technique… I wanted a rainbow of birdies, but could not find the perfect card stock colours. So I used some Hero Arts Shadow Inks - swiped them over the paper, left them to dry, then stamped on the birds. So simple. I used Green Hills, Butter Bar, Orange Soda, Pale Tomato and Cornflower… a PERFECT rainbow of colours.
I stamped the birds again on white card, then cut out just the eyes and paper pieced them on top. Then I added Glossy Accents to the eyes and beaks. Love the shine.
I can't wait to use the other animals in this set… wiggle eyes are on the horizon. :)

Have a great day.
