I hinted that I would be showing another way on my Wednesday tutorial and it just so happens to be Best Birds. The challenge over at Global Design Project this week is
and the challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday is Masculine Cards - perfect for me at the moment.
Thankfully birds are included because I really don't do insects. Butterflies are fine and bees are just about ok but I must admit I shudder at the new stamp sets we have at SU at the moment with all those bugs. I'm not even very good with the dragonflies although I know they are beautiful just not my cup of tea.
So my card included Colour Blocking which is bascially grabbing a load of all those scraps of cardstock we all keep and doing something useful with them.
My card on Monday was blues and today's card was greens. They are all stuck on to a white card background and I then used the Birds and Blooms thinlets to cut out the bird from the coloured stock. This gives a negative image of a white bird and you could just leave your card like this. I used the bird I'd cut out, stamped him with this corresponding image and popped him onto dimenstionals sitting on the stamped branch. A touch of Wink of Stella on his feathers, naturally, finishes him off. I used the Decorative Label punch for the greeting.
Here's my YouTube Tutorial which also shows another way of using this Technique
I can see I'm going to be using this technique a lot lately - you know when you come across something and you can't let it go - I'm eyeing up all my scraps!
As usual all products can be purchased direct from my store or why not come and join my team if you are thinking of SU as a hobby or a career. You will get to join one of the top UK teams with lots of help and fun. I also run classes at my home in Hampshire.
