Memory Box, poppystamps, Quiet Bird Sash two ways…

Pam Sparks Quiet Bird Sash Flat

Hello! Have you seen the new dies from poppystamps called sashes.  This one stays connected to the card piece on both ends of the branch when you die cut it. Then you slide another piece, in this case the largest Memory Box Stitched Rectangle, under the die cut branch and bird. HERE are the other new sash dies.

I die cut everything in watercolor paper and watercolored with distress inks and a water brush.  I smooshed the stamp pad on my craft mat, picked up the ink with the water brush and painted. Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Forest Moss, Gathered Twigs, Ripe Persimmon, Rusty Hinge and Dusty Concord ink pads and/or reinkers.

I edged the fawn with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and the mini ink blending tool.

The sentiment is from Memory Box (inked with Versafine Black Onyx ink)  and so is the Wildflower Landscape die.

The Quiet Bird Sash and Woodlawn Fawn are from poppystamps.

There’s a little ‘dew’ in the air.. hehe. Distress ink spatters and some White Linen spray that I unscrewed and hit the cap with my finger to get some white spatters.

Here’s another version… a quick ‘just a note’ from the sweet birdie!

I think that’s everything… THANK YOU so much for clicking over! Have fun splashing some ink around!  It’s been raining here and everything is so green!  Gotta love Spring! I better get outside and enjoy the sunshine, I heard it could rain again today! ttul!

Shopping links…click to see the products I used. I was just looking over the tools page at Starlitstudio and it’s amazing all the cool stuff there!  Check out the new Tacky Roller Tool!  YES! 

p.s. I have to tell you, I LOVE how good the stamp shammy cleans off Versafine ink. Just get it wet, ring it out and clean away. No baby wipe fibers on the stamp! Hip Hip hooray!  It cleans other inks too but you know how tough Versafine is… well…not anymore! yay!
