FS156 A Bird Sings

Today is the Featured Stamper at SCS is Nichole aka Butterfly Ears!!!  Huge congrats to Nichole!!!  :)  I was able to play straight away today and as soon as I saw her Be_Stampin'B's Challenge #22 card I knew exactly what I wanted to do!!!  (Don't you LOVE it when that happens!!!)

I started with a base of dark green bazzill and layered with yellow and white.  Around the edge of the white I used the Victorian Pierceabilities to pierce a pattern and then attached some Olive Satin Ribbon across the middle.  I then stamped the Sparrow from the soon to be released He Watches Me set from Our Daily Bread Designs in Jet Black Stazon and coloured with markers and a blender pen.  Across the bottom of the image I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and then cut it out with Label 1 Nestabilites and matted with a square pierce of dark green bazzill and popped up on foam tape.  To finish I added a bow (made using my Bow Easy and topped with a yellow button care of my friend Michelle) and then added Lemon Kaisercraft Pearls to the pierced border.

Stamps - He Watches Me (ODBD)
Paper - Dk Green, Yellow Bazzill, White
Ink - Jet Black Stazon
Accessories - Label 1 Nestabilities, Victorian Pierceabilities, 1" Olive Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Lemon Tart Button, Gold Cord, Lemon Kaisercraft Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!!  :)

I can't believe you spent so much time piercing the card. I hope you didn't have to start over at any point ofthe process. It really adds a delicate touch.
