Make My Monday - Birds

It's a real crowd-pleaser theme at Make My Monday this week - birds.

For my DT card, I  resist-stamped the bird onto a page from a book , tore the image out and matted it. I'm sorry I have lost the brand name for the bird stamp - I tried googling it but just found a whole load of new stamps I want to buy!

I pleated the music paper and added a die-cut flower I had previously coated in the melt-pot. For the middle, I added a piece of the book paper to a clear epoxy circle, and surrounded with gems.  I stamped the card base with a music stamp, masked with torn paper.

  3. This is wonderful! I love how you used the resist technique...I don't utilize this technique enough, but I think you've inspired me to bring out my embossing powder!! I love your flower too! :)

  4. Fabulous card Marina! The bird resist looks amazing and I love those sepia tones, a real favourite of mine.
    Thanks for being so supportive lately too, it's so kind of you.

  8. I like the combo of script and musical notes paper and the neutral colors. It's a great any occasion type of card, very practical to have laying around for a last minute invite of some kind. I think it even works as a sympathy card, if needed.

  9. Oooo I love this! I love the resist stamp and the paper under the epoxy sticker...makes it look really tied together! Thanks for playing at Scrapping4FunChallenges!
