This will become either a Fatherís Day card or a Birthday Card once I add the sentiment. I dry embossed Kraft cardstock with Cuttlebugís Bird Call embossing folder. I had to cut the folder in half to get the positioning I wanted but the folder works just as well without the top seam. I then painted the Kraft paper with mushroom acrylic paint, let it dry, and then sanded it to reveal the Kraft underneath. I cut out the image using Spellbinders Labels Thirteen. I masked off the entire image except the bird and then stamped the bird with a very tiny background print. The Labels Thirteen mat is Kraft again, but I put distress ink on the edges then stamped the same tiny print using bleach instead of ink. The flower is Spellbinders Carnation Creations and uses the same paint/stand/stamp technique as the bird.
