Thinking Warmer Thoughts: Bluebirds and Flowers

Brr... it is another cold night and another cup of hot chocolate sounds good. I am so not ready for winter!!!

Quick notes: Birds from Zoofari were stamped on watercolor paper and colored with markers. Simple, huh? Stamp the big flower thing from In the Spotlight on Whisper White in Night of Navy Classic ink and then punch out with the scallop circle punch. Sponge the edges with Night of Navy Classic ink and use the paper piercer to poke a hole in each petal. On another scrap of Whisper White stamp the hello stamp in Bashful Blue Classic ink and then punch out with the 1/2" circle punch. I layered this hello punch out in one of the Antique Brass build a brads, which made a perfect center for the flower (I'm loving these brads). I think the rest is pretty self-explanatory but shoot me an email if you need more details! :)
