Royal Kat Wednesday!

It's Royal Kat Wednesday again!! Hopefully you got here via Victoria's blog. If not jump on back to the beginning to make sure that you don't miss any of the fabulousness! Go here I'll wait. Are you back? Great, let's get started! As you my have noticed we had a delicious sketch provided by Maria.

I used the Birds of a Feather stamp set for this one. I actually tried a new technique on this card. You see in the set, the bird is only facing one way. I wanted 2 birds to face each other. I stamped the bird twice and using some thinner card stock I held it up to the light and traced the bird on the opposite side of the paper. I then went over it with a gold Spicia pen and colored it with Copics to match the Berry Sorbet ink I used on the first birdie.

Cut them out and they face each other! I set them on top of a chip board stem and some leaves. I thought the new Eco Stack from Cosmo Cricket coordinated perfectly with this set.

Well, that's all fro me! Trek over to Anessa and see what sorts of awesomeness she has in store for you!

Enjoy!
Lara
