Hi Chris here and today I would like to share with you my pretty little blue bird card. Ain't he just sweet! To recreate this card you will need:
Sin City Stamps Supplies:
Blue Sheer Ribbon
Other Supplies: Pacon Mixed Media paper, Modeling Paste(Liquidtex), Tim Holtz Distress Inks(Pumice Stone, Tea Dye, Walnut Stain, Ground Espresso, Prima patterned paper, Tim Holtz Embossing Diffuser Plates, foam tape, flower.
After cutting a piece of mixed media paper the size of your card. I applied modeling paste over my stencil. I purposely left the surface a little rough for extra texture
I then lightly ink my bricks with Pumice Stone Distress ink, I then continued layering Distress Ink in Tea Dye, Walnut Stain and Ground Espresso, to get the brick to the color I wanted. Once I was satisfied I attached my brick background to my card base.
I then cut my patterned paper to the size of my card. I used my Tim Holtz Embossing Diffuser Plates as a template to cut the center oval from my card front.
After cutting out the oval window I attached the card front to the card using foam tape, and added the bird cage and my blue bird.
I added a small flower and a ribbon bow to finish off my card. You can see what a difference those little touches make to the finished card.

Supplies needed for this project include:
Sin City Stamps Supplies
Anime Fairies 2 Stamp Set
Pattern 2 Stencil
Around the House Die Cuts
Light Pink Sheer Ribbon
Mixed Flatback Embellishments (little flower)
Other Supplies: Pacon Mixed Media Paper, Tim Holtz Sizzix #8 Tag, Tim Holtz Distress Ink- Victorian Velvet, Core'dinations Tim Holtz Card Stock, Liquid Pearls, Gesso, Gold Sharpie, Pebbles-accent greeting, ColourArte-Twinkling H2Os - Black Cherry, Beacon Fabric Tac, Toule Netting
After die cutting my tag from the mixed media paper, I gently inked my tag using my Pattern 2 Stencil .
I then stamped over the stencil using my Anime Fairies 2 Stamp Set. I then matted my tag on cardstock and set aside while I dressed up my die cut.
When I started, my background of the die cut was blue like this
I added Gesso to the blue die cut to make the chair white. I then added a color wash using ColourArte-Twinkling H2Os - Black Cherry. After drying, I added the overlay.
To dress up the die cut even more I added some "rivets" on the arm of my chair using a gold sharpie. I then added some "buttons" to the chair back using liquid pearls.
I then added my chair to my tag and topped my tag off with a double bow (a smaller bow placed on top of the larger netting bow), and added a Mixed Flatback Embellishments (little flower) on top of the double bow. I added a sticker quick greeting and viola! all done.
