Birdie Hugs

Good Morning Everyone

Today im sharing a little Hugs card for a friend.  Using more new Katzelkraft stamps of these fabulous quirky birds, combining them with ombre papers.

DL in size.  I took a piece of this fab ombre paper for the background, i felt it looked like a night sky so after cutting to size i splashed silver paint on to look like stars - its metallic so shimmers in the light, i attached to the cardfront.  I then stamped my birds, once on the base and again onto patterned papers.  
On the paper birds I used white paint on their eyes and yellow paint to their beaks, i then cut them out, gently shaped the bodies and added to the base lining up with their legs. Glossy accents added to their eyes.
I stamped the hugs sentiment. I then took a fineliner black pen and doodled in the ground for them to stand on.  Stamped the berry/flowers using a mini lavinia stamp.
I doodled with a white gel pen and added black glitter to the flowers to finish. 

Close up, you can see their glossy eyes shining.

Items Used:
Katzelkraft bird stamps 'Les zoisos' KTZ217
Katzelkraft sentiment stamps 'Carpe Diem' KTZ206
Lavinia mini berry stamp (LAV509)
