In addition to stamping, I like to watch birds.
The other day, as I was sitting by my the window working on some cards, I saw five raptors circling quite low. I knew they were mostly vultures, but suddenly, another bird caught my eye. It was a Bald Eagle, so I rushed outside to take a better look. It did circle around a few times so we could get a good look, even without binoculars. What luck!
So naturally, with these two interests, I like to have some bird stamps in my collection, and I use them quite a bit!
Let me explain how I did the background. First, I stenciled three colors of Distress Inks onto regular white cardstock. With the stencil still in place, I then spread flexible modeling paste over top of the inking. After that, I removed the stencil. As it dries, it gives the look that I colored the pastes, but this method is SO much simpler!
