gotta luv Friday nights when the IC is posted. We are always in for a treat with Audrie's luscious choices. Today is no exception: Birds of a Feather.
Now please be gentle with me...I am experimenting on not having all my ducks in a row (grin). This card is a bit wonky...but I had the thought and since I thunk it...I must bring it forth...it was this hummingbird at the spigot that grabbed me. We are fortunate in the PNW to have Anna hummingbirds winter here. Daily I can look out my windows and be treated to the sight of one.
And yes, I really have a spigot stamp...amazing what you can collect over the years...just waiting for the day.
But instead of a stream of water, I thought why not have an outpouring of love...nesting season is here. The Emerson quote was stamped direct to paper with the 'Teal Zeal' as was the pair of hummers ('Timber Brown'). The spigot was inked, embossed, and fussy cut. I colored the seam binding with a Copic marker, twisted it several times.
I love the direction my inspiration took me. It's not a perfect card...I'd have wanted a bit more perfect stream of love...but truly life is messy and I need to experiment some more...
Have a wonderful Saturday. May you find inspiration 'round every corner.

Your experiment is a huge success...this is sooo unusual, and I am using that word in a "good" way. How creative to have matched these stamps together and to have made "love" flowing instead of water. Faved.
