Flocked Birdies


She says she's more into treating the kind with four legs than with two wings, however these little birdies are too cute! I think cuteness is great for a non-traditional baby thank-you card for the veterinarian mama-to-be.

Everything but the Kitchen Sink is hosting their last challenge, which is to use texture. (I wish the hosts the best of luck on their adventures, they sure are a sweet bunch.) I stamped these little fellas in a few rows and covered them with some orange/yellow flock, for a sweet, subtle texture. Flocking is an interesting supply to work with, others in my household thought so too: my husband didn't quite understand what it was but thought that the first bird down below had "exceptional shading", and my littlest son wanted to stick his fingers in it and make a mustache...


Limelight Papercrafts is the sponsor for the challenge, please be sure to stop over there to catch some great, great deals before the doors close. Speaking from experience, Limelight has fabulous customer service and equally grand product. Moxie Fab World is having a Card Creations Challenge week, so I'm entering this into the Thank You category.

Cardstock: (White) Georgia Pacific, (Gold) Recollections

Stamps: (The Birds and the Bees) Wplus9
Ink: (Onyx Black) Versamagic
Embellishments: (Black Twill) May Arts, (Staples)
Other: (Flock) Studio G, (Black Marker) Pilot
