Birdies in the Middle...

Happy Monday!
I hope that everyone had a great weekend!  It has been warming up here and it is a little humid this afternoon.  We are expecting some rain, but it does not look too promising!  These little birdies (SU punch) are waiting out the imaginary droplets (my grey polka dots) sitting on the tall Memory Box leaf stalk (I cut these twice from magenta cs for a taller stalk).
The birds were water coloured with blue and black soot distress inks.  I then sponged the edges in the magenta ink.  My background was made by using an old SU polka dot background stamp with SU smoky slate onto a linen finish grey card stock and then I used another old SU background stamp called sanded and stamped it in white and heat embossed in Ranger white.  I happened upon a partial ream of this card stock in my closet...forgot that I had ever bought this and it was a pleasant surprise :)

Hope that you have had a great start to the week!

  4. This is fantastic! The grey linen cardstock has been truly transformed into an actual canvas, Chriss - gorgeous! I have to tell you the birds nearly look like mother-of-pearl from where I'm sitting... save this 'recipe' of colors - OH and then add a drop of pearl spray to the mix?!! I'm coming over...=] Michele
