Bird on a Branch

>> Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Hi Everyone,
The winner of today's stamp, named Bird on Branch is

yoyomaker!


Just send an email to info@drsdesigns.com to claim your prize...Congratulations!

I was so thrilled to be able to showcase this realistic bird stamp on my card today. I began by creating the background using the Silhouette Branch Background inked in rust on a rust card base. Using the Birthday Sheet Music stamp to make the next layer, it looked so good, that I then decided that this would be sufficient for this card's sentiment.

The bird was stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and I used pencils for coloring medium. What a refreshing change for me, I've been in a Copic rut and the pencils created a much softer look on this rustic card.


I added some distress ink to the edges of my die cut medallion and after fussy cutting my bird, I put him on the center as my focal point. Some twine and a little birdhouse charm made this complete.

There are only a couple more days in our Stamp A Day Give Away, so remember to comment for a chance to win!

DRS Designs also has a whole group of stamps in the new releases section at the store...You are going to love what's new!

Karin,
This is the prettiest card ever! I really like how you distressed the medallion and penciling in your bird with color was the perfect choice.

Great coloring on the bird.

The coloring of the bird is superb. I stay away from birds as I can never make them look realistic. You are best in that arena. Also, try using a piece of twig as the branch for the bird to sit on.

I really like the soft look created by your pencils on the bird. The distressed ink on the edges of the medallion is a nice touch as well. Is the yellow design in the background a cutout?

I guess I am going to be digging out my pencils.
