Birds of a Feather Card

Today I wanted to share a fun card I made recently using a variety of the new Archival Inks Ranger came out with...  I have always used the Black Archival Ink for most of my images but I tell you their new wider range of colors really makes them a "Go To" ink for many projects. 

Birds of a Feather card -

I have to tell you I absolutely LOVE the pansies in this border set of stamps.  The pansies are so life-like it's amazing.  "Realistic" stamps are my fav's so these are right up my alley.  This stamp paired with the new Archival Ink Colors are fantastic...  makes for a beautiful finished image.

Cut each of the pansies from the cardstock and apply black ink to all of the edges. Add a dot of Yellow Stickles Glitter Glue and set aside to dry.

2. Stamp bird on scrap cardstock with Sepia Ink; add a bit of Venetian Orange to its underbelly using a Cut & Dry Nib. Trim and set aside.

3. Die-cut the Fleur De Lis frame from blue cardstock and mount a piece of white cardstock in the center. Stamp flowers, bird nest and sentiment. Add a few dots of Stickles Glitter Glue to each of the flowers.

4. Use Library Green Archival Ink to stamp a 4.5x6.5” white cardstock panel with the leaf bunch rubber stamp. Add color to the edges of this panel using the Ink Blending Tool & Foam.

5. Affix the leaf background panel to the card base; add the Fleur De Lis stamped frame and layer on the pansies and bird.
