Bird Song

 Hi Stampers,
Today I'm sharing another sneak peek with you!  This is another set from Beccy Muir and I'm in love!  I love birds anyway, so this set just really grabbed me.  I had this background sprayed sitting on my desk pile from when I was first playing with the Memories Mists and templates and decided it would work nice with the stamp set.  I ended up using a square punch to punch out the birds in the cages and embossed them with Velvet Sparkle EP and layered them on a scalloped square and put them back with dimensional tape.  The sentiment was embossed on vellum with White Detail EP. I didn't take a picture of the inside, but I also stamped one of the new images on the inside:) (clue - it's the stamp in the second card)


For the second card I used the Cosmic Embossing Powder in semi-transparent pastels, to give it a soft springy look.  Pastels is not my favorite, but I think the card came out okay:)  I stamped the background with a feather stamp in the set.
Thanks for looking:)  I hope you have a blessed day.
Jill

Both are so pretty. I love the spotlighting on the first one and the vellum sentiment is fantastic.

These are wonderful Jill! I don't use a lot of pastels either, but I really love the way your card turned out. I love the stronger colours in the first card too, that background is gorgeous.
Cheers,
Beccy
