Bird Note Cards

I got these new Dylusions bird stamps this week and I love them!  I made the card base using acrylic paints and stencils from Stencil Girl, Tim Holtz, and Joggles.  The birds are stamped on white cardstock with black ink and clear embossed.  I colored them with Posca paint pens. Thanks for coming by to see my new bird cards!

Paint Chip ATC's

In my previous post, I listed my first ATC for this Paint Chip ATC challenge.  Here are the last two!  I used vintage text, strips of paint chips, stencils, acrylic paints and stamped images (Tim Holtz stamps).  I stamped the images directly onto paint chips and cut them out.  I popped up the stamped images.  Thanks for coming by my blog today!

Paint Chip ATC Swap Challenge

The March ATC swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group is a paint chip challenge swap.  I cut paint chips into strips and glued them down on the background paper.  The image is from the Collage Stuff Broken Collage Sheet.  I colored it with Copic markers.  The gold German scrap border is also available at Collage Stuff. Thanks for coming by my blog today!

Birdhouse ATC Swap

The February swap at the Collage Stuff yahoo group is a birdhouse ATC swap. I wanted my birdhouse ATC's to have a Valentine's Day theme too.  I cut a rough house shape from chipboard and covered it with an old phone book page.  Then I stenciled with acrylic paints using Tim Holtz and The Crafter's Workshop stencils.  I used washi tape for the "roof".  The red hearts and black birds are German scrap (Dresden trim) items available at Collage Stuff.  I painted some paper with gold paint to fill the heart shape. To back the house shape, I used black illustration board embossed with gold detail embossing powder and script stamp.  I edged everything with black paint.  Thanks for coming by to view my birdhouse ATC's!
