Swirly Bird is such a fun set with a myriad of possibilities. One more card from this set and then I will move on to other products.
Our friend and blog reader Chris R. asked how you could possibly use the bird in this set. This one is for you Chris! It's a natural for the bird to sit on the nest with eggs waiting to hatch. After stamping those images, I banner cut this piece and popped it on top of a Mint Macaron Scribbly cut with a Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Die. A double Linen Thread Bow adds texture.
The background was created by adding water to a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock followed by drops of Crushed Curry Reinker. I used a small paintbrush to spread the ink around. After this piece dried, I stamped some texture in Crushed Curry Ink with some dots found in the Swirly Bird Stamp Set.
A strip of striped paper from the English Garden Designer Series Paper was added just above the bottom of the watercolored background to provide an anchor for my card. It is topped with a banner cut from Mint Macaron Cardstock. The sentiment from Garden in Bloom is stamped in Soft Suede Ink & popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Finally, the inside of the card is also stamped with an image found in Garden in Bloom. A few butterflies from the same stamp set add a touch of whimsy.
Counting this card I have created 4 very different cards that have posted over the past 4 days. If you would like to see the others, then please scroll back and check them out. I would appreciate it if you would please leave me a comment with which card is your favorite. It will be fun to see what you think!
