I wanted to do a birthday card featuring this cute whimsical bird and decided a bold background would be fun. Since it is The 4th of July, I used Red, White and Blue as my color inspiration. I started by stamping the Hero Arts Tribal Stripes Bold Print Background Stamp with Ranger Denim ink. Next I stamped the bird from one of my favorite stamp sets, Simon Says Stamp Stacking Animals.
I used the same denim ink for the bird and sentiment to tie the card together. I colored the bird with Copic markers and then added Tonic Nuvo Glaze to the birds beak. I trimmed the smaller panel down and mounted (with foam tape) on the blue background,. I then mounted the background on a white card and stamped a birthday sentiment inside the card.
