Hi! This card was made for today's Sketch challenge.
Speedy the Cat is a bit big for his britches today...He waltzed up to me, while I was reading the newspaper and jumped onto it! He then proceeded to tear it up with his fangs! I got the hint and headed back to my stampin' room. I decided to use this cool set. I love birds, and I wanted to make a "fantasy" bird Valentine for my mother. She's a VERY big bird fan...Okay, she's NOT a fan of THE Big Bird...She likes REAL birds! LOL! So, when I color stamped bird images fantasy colors she goes luney!
The images were stamped onto watercolor paper. I used markers to color them. Next, I cut them out. The sentiment was a filigreed number that I just punched out! I was NOT going to cut out that filigree...Even I have my limits! LOL!
The hearts are Sizzix dies. I HAND CUT the outline hearts.
The White EMBOSSED paper is NOT a Cuttlebug Embossing folder. I purchase it ALREADY embossed. It's made by Paper Palette.
