Happy Bird-Day!

Greetings! It's Tuesday so you've got Kathi here to share a project with you. Today is May 31st which is World Parrot Day so I decided to celebrate this holiday with a slimline birthday card featuring the wonder Wingman Clear Stamp Set by Heffy Doodle

Here's the card!

I started the card by stamping three of the adorable parrots onto Copic-friendly cardstock and onto respositionable label paper. The label paper versions of the all three were fussy-cut but the two left-facing parrots were cut so that their bodies and wings would be on one piece and their tails would be on the other. The body/wing masks for the left-facing parrots and the entire flying parrot placed over their counterparts on the image panel.

Using a stamping platform, the stand and the swing were stamped onto the image panel and onto label paper, which was fussy-cut for masks and placed atop their counterparts. The tail masks for the two left-facing parrots were adhered in place.

The three image panels were trimmed to 2.5" square and brushed with Jersey Cream Prism Ink by Hunkydory Crafts to create a colored background.  Jersey Cream Prism Ink was brushed over the corner flourish from the Found in the Woods - Scrapcosy Stencil PS190 by PaperArtsy on the upper right corner of the swinging parrot. The stencil was cleaned, then flipped and Jersey Cream Prism Ink was brushed over the corner flourish on the upper left of the parrot on the stand. Jersey Cream Prism Ink was brushed over the plain flourish onto the top of the panel with the flying parrot.

A piece of clear acetate was placed across the base of the parrot on the stand and brown ink was brushed across the base of the panel to ground the stand. 

PineLime Punch, and Sundance Elements Inks by Lavinia Stamps were brushed over a piece of mixed media paper and heat set to create the background panel. 

Green Oasis VersaFine Clair Ink by Tsukineko was brushed over the Glory Stencil by Lavinia Stamps onto the background panel. The panel was cut with a slimline die then edged with Green Oasis VersaFine Clair Ink.

All three of the parrot squares were edged with the Green Oasis VersaFine Clair Ink, then adhered to the background panel.

Jersey Cream Prism Ink was brushed onto a strip of white cardstock then  Green Oasis VersaFine Clair Ink was used to stamp the sentiment. The sentiment was die-cut. and adhered to the cardfront with foam adhesive popping up the center of the sentiment strip and the ends glued down.
