Itty Bitty Birds

The other day I wanted to make some cards using these IB Karen Lockhart Birds which I got for free at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design. That's right, Susana still has the offer going on that if you purchase 4 regular size Karen Lockhart stamps you'll receive a IB stamp for free! Don't wait or you might miss out on this fantastic offer!
Since I wanted to make several of these thinking of you bird cards I made them small 3x3 and had so much fun creating them! First I stamped and colored the IB Birds with my Copics and added some Spica Glitter pen to them (see close up shot). Then I cut & embossed the bird images using my square inch Nestabilities die, matted them, added pop dots and added them to the card fronts I had ready.

Supplies: IB Birds - Karen Lockhart, Trendy Trees saying - SU, BoBunny designer paper, Ribbon, Gems, Nesties, Pop dots, Spica glitter pen, Copics: B000, B02, YG07, YG09, YR31, YR23, T0. Colors: Chocolate Chip, Garden Green, Very Vanilla, Whisper White.
