Just another one of my creations for VSN (Virtual Stamp Night). This one in particular was for the Nail Polish, mud MASK, and Lotion challenge. Just a little mud masking for the birdies to make them beautiful. :)
Quick notes: The little birdie was stamped on Whisper White and then masked with a post-it note (stamp bird on post-it and cut out to create the mask) before stamping the second bird. On a second post-it note punch a small oval. Lay the sticky note over the birds with the opening near their feet and then sponge with Old Olive Classic ink. Color the birdies with Watercolor Wonder Crayons and a blender pen. The rest of the card was a matter of doing some wheeling, sponging and finding the perfect accessories. Yeah... my cards feel the need to be stylish... especially the birdies. :)

Did you notice? I changed up the look of my blog a bit. I simplified it and put a different banner at the top. Circles are in, ya know! :) The background paper from the banner was downloaded from www.digitreats.typepad.com. I also messed around with my links a bit, hopefully I didn't misspell anyone's name! :) If I did, let me know.
