Create Your Own Sunshine using Nesting Bird by KLM Digital Designs

 

I selected the stamp Nesting Bird for this card by KLM Digital Designs. I loved the idea of the sentiment, "Create Your Own Sunshine". I thought it was so appropriate for life. We shouldn't sit around and wait for good times, but we can make good times happen ourselves.

I used a Tim Holtz Distress Ink, mustard seed to create the background. It was really very easy to do. I cut a piece of paper 5x7. I used a makeup brush to cover the paper with the distress ink. The I simply took a scrap piece of paper and went over the edge with the distress ink. I moved the paper around to create rays of sunshine. 

After I created the background I colored the stamp with my Copic markers. I used my Scan n Cut to cut out the image.

Copics:

Cherry Blossom Bird - ever so pretty!



For this card I chose Cherry Blossom Bird stamp from KLM Designs. KLM has both photo polymer and digital stamps. This image is a digital stamp, but their photo polymer stamps are awesome!

This was a fun card to create. I wanted to use the sentiment "Sending Hugs" which came with the stamp set. I thought that it was important to have an uplifting background for the sentiment and stamp.

This is a 5x7 card. I used Copic Xpress paper and cut it to size. To create the rainbow background, I used Tim Holtz Distress Crayons. To create this background, I colored with the crayons. I took a baby wipe and saturated the colors. Once the colors were dry I used a bit of Spectrum Noir glitter ink. I took a thin paint brush and created a marble affect. 

I colored the bird with Copics in shades of orange, yellow, blue and greens. I used lilacs, red, and green for the flowers.

 Distress Crayons:

  • Seedless Preserves
  • Chopped Sapphire
  • Peeled Paint
  • Fossilized Amber
