Birthday Birdie

Good morning! It's wednesday and that means a new stampTV video tutorial. Today, Gina has a video on coloring with your colored pencils with odorless mineral spirits (OMS), so that is how I colored on my card.

The bird/branch stamp is from Home Tweet Home, from Gina K Designs. After I colored it with my Koh-i-noor pencils with OMS, I heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder.

Then I sponged in the background with So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose. I stamped some greenery, from Tropical Flowers, with Creamy Caramel.

Then sentiment is from Elegant Flowers, from the Floral Frenzy Kit. The layers are backed with Chocolate Chip cardstock and the base is Kiwi Kiss.

Be sure to check out Gina's new technique challenge for this week. A random winner will be selected to win a free stamp set!

Thanks for coming by. I hope you have a day filled with laughter.
