Little bird for you

gelatobird

  • Dies – Memory Box “Perched Reed Bird” and “Woodland Branch”
  • Stamp – Avery Elle “Oh Happy Day”
  • Patterned paper – Crate Paper “The Pier: Surf Shop” (both sides)
  • Brads – Creative Impressions
  • Embossing Powder – Stampendous – Aqua
  • Faber Castell Gelatos
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

For this clean and simple card, I used the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches (#153). I die cut the bird from cardstock on which I’d blended several colors of Gelatos with a baby wipe. After it was cut, I added a little more color with Gelatos and blended the colors together until I was happy with the look. I was able to match the color of the bird with my embossing powder, which I was pretty pleased about! I picked up the green in the bird and the patterned paper with the brads.

On another note, as far as I know, I don’t have a chicken stamp! The Shopping Our Stash challenge for this week is to create a card with a chicken image (because it is Chicken Month), or to use another type of bird image. So I opted for this little bird. Thanks for visiting today.
