Happy Bird-day To You!

Yay! Today I have the fourth project for this month’s mini series of tutorials. I’m featuring a tropical stamp & die collection designed by Kat Uno for Catherine Pooler Designs. If you missed the beginning, visit the first post HERE. In the mean time, let’s look at today’s project…

Step 1: Blend & Emboss

I started this project with a tag left over from last month’s tutorial. It’s is a 2″x5.5″ rectangle with a fishtail punched out on one end.

Leaves from “In the Tropics” were stamped around the border with clear embossing ink and heat set with white embossing powder.

Step 2: Splatter

Also as before, I splattered a bit of white pigment, blue acrylic, and clear sparkly ink over the entire piece and set it aside to dry.

Step 3: Cut & Stamp

Next, I cut circles with the larger being vellum and a slightly smaller one being from heavy smooth white cardstock. I then stamped a sentiment in the center of the white circle.

Step 4: Set & Stick

I punched and set an eyelet into the top of the tag before adding a bit of white cotton twine and coordinating ribbon I found in my stash.

I then attached the vellum circle to the tag base with adhesive tape followed by the white sentiment circle and birds using a combination of liquid glue & adhesive foam

Step 5: Finishing Touches

Finally, I added highlight details to the birds with a white gel pen and added sequins.
