Bloggers Challenge 153
Technique Junkies Newsletter that were new to me and I used a new stamp from Stamp Zia. The background is the Scored Diamonds technique which was the online bonus technique. Each of the tiles is scored around the edge and across the centers; then the boxes are cut out and laid on the background panel. It's not a difficult technique, but it does require a lot of scoring, cutting, and careful placement. The bird is a cool stamp to work with. It is mostly solid. I used the Kissed With a Twist technique where you ink the stamp and then ink a patterned stamp and stamp directly on the first stamp. The first stamp is then huffed on and stamped onto cardstock. For this card I cut out the bird and attached it directly to the background. His feet are attached to a piece of bamboo I had in my embellishment stash. The letters were die cut using Quikkutz.
