You can fly

Hi there,

we are having a New Release Blog Hop for the Trendy Birds 2 stamp set over at STAMPlorations:

  • mask off a strip on the left and on the right edge on a stitched panel of watercolor paper
  • color the remaining strip with Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet) and spritz it with Pearlized Water for extra sparkle and texture
  • arrange the birds from the amazing brand new STAMPlorations Trendy Birds 2 stamp set on your panel and pick them up with your MISTI
  • stamp the birds and the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versamark (Onyx Black) - I stamped everything three times for good coverage and a crisp impression on the watercolor paper
  • water down some Dylusions Paint (Black Marble) and use it to add some splatters with a paintbrush
  • add a strip of black cardstock to the left side of the panel before adhering it to a white cardbase

Here's a quick look at the whole set:


Until June 1st the Trendy Birds 2 stamp set is available at 10% off over at the STAMPlorations shop.
