Candy Colored Goodness -- and Candy!

I had the chance to borrow this bird stamp recently, and I love how it turned out! I warned my friend that if her stamp is ever missing, she should check my pocket. I know, I know... "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's stamps." But in this case, it's warranted, don't you think? This birdie rocks! I stamped several extras to play with later, too.

For this card, since the focal image is stamped on patterned paper, I decided to use the Neenah white for the scalloped edge. And for a little twist, I painted the scallops with Angel Wings Shimmerz. {No need to cover the whole oval since only the little scallops are showing!}



Supplies:
Stamps: Bird Stamp (Unity)
Paper: Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Smooth (Neenah); Euphoria PP (BasicGrey)
Paint/Ink: Angel Wings Shimmerz (Shimmering Products); Lilac Posies Memento Dye Ink (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Petite Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Mat Pack & Paper Piercer (Stampin' Up!)


Happy Stamping!

OH MY GOSH, Kim! EVERY time I see your work, I am amazed! I am sad I don't get to see you more often, and since we don't live THAT far apart, we MUST remedy that! I have crops at my house all the time, but would love to come to town and scrap with you and your friends. It was so nice of them to let me invade on you all today! It was SO great to see you! Let's do it again soon!!! and this time I'll bring my scrap stuff! :)
