Bluebirds will always hold a special place in my heart, even if it is just a rendition of one colored with colored pencils.
I was inspired by the gorgeous, geometric pattern image at Pinterest Inspired Challenge. So... I started by applying a light sponging of yellow ink onto the corner of a white cardstock panel. I then added a herringbone pattern with a stencil and embossing paste, applying the paste heavily at the top of the panel and less towards the bottom. I then colored (with colored pencils) and fussy cut a digital bird stamp and mounted it to the dried, geometric panel, which was then edged with black marker and adhered to a white card base. I finished the card with a stamped sentiment.
The Whipped Spackle was quite fun to work with. It's really soft looking after it hardens, kind of tricks the eye! I could have mixed some yellow ink into the paste, but I knew I wanted the yellow to show underneath the pattern, to make the pattern stand out more.
I'm also adding this to A Day for Daisies Challenge: Add a Touch of Wood!
