For my second DT project with the  Creative Expressions Sam Poole designed 'Birds' set I have made a little ATC. This one uses the brand new Tim Holtz Seasonal Distress Inks which are just fabulous! I 'painted' and ATC with white acrylic paint and Cut and Dry foam. Then I used a dotty mask and dabbed Peacock Feathers Distress Ink through the dots, moved the mask a little and dabbed Shaded Lilac through the mask.
I stamped the birdhouse on to some dictionary paper with Jet Black Archival Ink and cut it out. I've just noticed there's a little ribbon fibre on the picture! Tee hee!
The bird was stamped on to the same paper with Peacock Feathers and cut the bird out with the plumage separately. The sentiment was stamped on the same paper and I finished the ATC with a little ribbon. I hope this, and my uber talented fellow DT members, have inspired you to use this stamp set! Have a terrific weekend!
