Birds of a feather.


This one is for the twofer challenge.   With so so many xmas in july fun I couldn't resist.   

This first card is a birthday greeting.  I blended multiple distress inks ( Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Fossilized Amber and Mermaid Lagoon through a Ranger Dylusion Stencil,   I cut the oval with a double stitched stack by MFT.   The birds are from Dylusion as well and I colored them with markers.  I set it behind/below the open oval.   The sentiment is from MFT Yay for You and I use Ranger Jet Black.  I added a couple of clear dot neuvo drops for a bit of texture (you can't see them in this pic but they're there) and we'll call this one done. 
For this card, I would like to enter the following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge - "H" use Happy
Watercooler Challenge - 320  Occasions
2 Crafty Critters - ATG with a critter
Let's Craft and Create - 173 - punch or die. 

The second one, with the same stamp set, was stamped three times and I fussy cut them out.  The background was inked with multiple distress inks in the same colors as the birds (festive berries, crushed olive, peeled paint).   The stencil is from Dylusions- The sentiment is from ArtC - it went from not being used from the day I bought it in 2019 to a workout this week. Stamped in Ranger jet black.  I added a gold mylar sticker line down the edge of the stencil and the cold mylar sticker hearts near the sentiment.
