Hi everyone! Today’s card started with the idea of using masking tape (or in my case washi tape) to create a masked stripes background.

 

 

So after placing a few pieces of tape on a piece of white paper, I colored the ramaining white areas with Mustard Seeds Distress ink. At this stage, I stamped a few flower images using the same ink, to add more interest. Then peeled off the tape carefully and placed it back masking the already colored areas. I went over the uncolored stripes with a light layer of Evergreen Bough Distress ink. To achieve a light layer of coloring I used a blending brush instead of a blending tool.

 

 

I continued by die cutting the panel using a stitched rectangle die. I also die cut a tag shaped window out of the panel and placed it temporarily onto the card base and into my stamping platform, in order to align my sentiment. Then removed the panel and stamped the sentiment directly on the card base.

The panel was then foam mounted on top and a little birdie was adhered (also with foam squares) right outside the window.

For coloring the bird I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers 021-Light Carmine and 050-Yellow. I fussy cut it with my scissors. A few clear Pretty Pink Posh sequind were added here and there to accent.
