Layer of Color Saturday - Backyard Birds

Good Morning!

Hope you are having a good weekend. We are staying in with sick kids, so I'm hoping to have some crafting time while they rest and nap. Then maybe I'll take my own nap!

Today I have a card to share that I made using the new Layers of Color stamp sets, Backyard Birds and Nature Walk. Both of these sets work great for any type of card, but I used them for a birthday card for my mother in law.

I've used some BasicGrey Wisteria papers and distressed all of the edges. I made the flowers with the flower stamps from Nature Walk and colored with with Twinkling H2Os to give them some shimmer and added pearls to the centers. The image was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copics and then I added some flower soft to the tree branch for some texture. My final embellishment was a piece of hodgepodge hardware to accent the image piece.

Both of these stamp sets are now available in the Layers of Color online boutique. You can also find more samples using these stamps in the online gallery. Lots and lots of beautiful ideas for these stamps!

Thanks for dropping by, enjoy your weekend! Happy stamping! :)
