Swirly Birds
Topic: New Work

Will I NEVER run out of calendar bird illustrations? Hopefully not!

I cut these with a Nestabilities die in my Cuttlebug and then used the die to emboss the scalloped edge. The background is a printed scrapbook paper run through the Cuttlebug with a folder, twice. I used a distress ink pad to color just the raised portions and then cut the four edges with fancy scissors. The same distress pad was used to color the cut edges. 

The folded cardstock is a blue/gray parchment pattern and I used distress ink in Weathered Wood to tone the edges. Before the pieces were glued together I placed three graduated sized square rhinestone brads and a greeting cut with a Cuttlebug die. I had a rhinestone the same color as the brads so I glued that on to dot the I.
