Our Daily Bread Designs. Of course, I went shopping!
One of the things I ordered was this bird stamp and die. I stamped the sparrow on white cardstock, then cut it out with the die. Next, I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils.
When I put it on my patterned paper, it was hard to see the details without mounting the image on another color. I trimmed off that white border that is left by the die and cut another piece out of the brown cardstock. All this 'fussy-cutting' took me a while, then I had to glue the image to the die-cut. After all this, I assembled these cards.
This patterned paper is from a 6X6 pad called Songbird Collection by Prima Marketing. The sentiments are gold stickers that I put on the ribbon.
