JustRite's Backyard Birds!

Hello again!!! I have a double post today!!! If you are here for Crafty Secrets.....just scroll down a bit! : )

JustRite has come out with some gorgeous new stamps and one of them is Backyard Birds! I chose the robin.....although I didn't color him anything like a robin......creative license right? I colored the image with Copics. (E31, E33, E35, E50, G82, YG63, YG95, YG03, Y32, BG10, BG0000, Bg32, v06, RV00)) The image was cut using a Spellbinder's circle. I backed the image with a small scalloped circle. The sentiment was stamped in Ripe Avocado by Papertrey Ink. It was cut out with two Spellbinder's circle dies. The edges were inked a bit. I cut a circle to 8 inches using my Cricut cartridge George & Basic Shapes. I cut the circle in half and then folded it in half again. I used my scalloped scissors to cut the edges. I also did lots of hand sewing on this card!
And of course what would a card be without some glitter on the bird or eggs? : )

JustRite will be showing their new sets all week, so be sure to check out the blog daily! Have a great rest of your Monday!!!

LOL on the creative license thing...I just used this set today too and was thinking that I definitely didn't color mine very realistically....that's part of the fun of card making though, right? :) Gorgeous card, Michele!!
