Today's mixed media card features the newly released Bonnet Birdie stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I was privileged to be the colorist for the digital version of this image. This sweet little bird was colored with Copic markers and the hat was stamped twice so I could layer it on top of the original hat for more dimension and to give a bit more shadow to her eyes. This also allowed me to add dimensional tape to the ribbon streamer coming off her hat.
The beak and claws were covered with Brushable Glue and then Mimosa Sparkle N Soft was added to the claws and Autumn Sparkle to her beak. Fire Engine Red glitter accents the dots on the ribbon on the hat and Nuvo Crystal Drops (Sugared Almond) accents the flower centers.
The image was then die cut using the Tonic Studios Mixed Edge Rectangle layering set and adhered to a die cut by Jeanine's Art (Garden Classics - Lace Frame Side Oval). I cut this frame from white cardstock and then applied three different colors of Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Indian Gold, Cosmic Brown, and Aquamarine) with a stipple brush. The flower centers on this die cut were accented with Nuvo Crystal Drops (Sweet Lilac and Sugared Almond).
I wanted a mat for this die cut, so I traced around the die onto a piece of purple cardstock and then fussy cut it out. I added Sparkle embossing powder to the mat and heat set it. The patterned paper behind the mat was accented with more Sweet Lilac Crystal Drops.
The card base was dry embossed using a Sue Wilson embossing folder (Rambling Designs) and the raised areas were accented with more Cosmic Brown Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.
