Bird in a Field of Flowers

Hi Dreamers!
I have a bit a free time this morning and thought you would like to see this cute card I made with a really cool stamp from Magenta called Bird in Flowers.  I used a couple different coloring techniques, some hand sewing, and fussy cutting on this project.  Take a look.




  • Cover the stamp with a green and rust ink.  Then Stamp on white CS.
  • Distress with Frayed Burlap and Spiced Marmalade ink.
  • Ink the stamp with markers and  stamp a second and third image on White CS.  





  • Fussy cut the bird from one of the stamped images and the wing from the third.  
  • Distress with distress inks (listed above)
  • Layer onto the first stamped image.







  • To make the ribbon sewn piece: pierce zig zag DP ( from My Mind's Eye) with a piercing tool
  • Thread 1/8" ribbon in a large eyed needle
  • Sew the ribbon into the holes one color at a time;  tie off the ends
  • Tie an extra bow for the corner of the card
  • Add a few rhinestones





  • Add a fussy cut flower from one of the marker stamped pieces.
  • Stamp a pretty sentiment (My Sentiments Exactly)

Isn't this sweet!?  I would like to enter my Bird in a field of flowers in

Well, I think I will go and throw in another load of laundry.  My life is so exciting!  LOL  It is too cold to work in the yard today.  Tomorrow is supposed to be a really nice Spring day!  I need a tall shelf for my studio.  I think I will head out tomorrow and look around for something.   I hope your weekend is just lovely! 
 I will be working on something made with Grungeboard for Tuesday.  See you then!!! Love ya.
