Thank You for Caring

I have a serious addiction to bird images. Birds and owls. They just suck me in (and empty my pockets! LOL!). When I saw this new image by Hero Arts, I had to snatch it up! Did I also mention that I love newsprint? There's just something about it that is just so cool!
So here's my suggestion: If you're a stamp producing company, you NEED to make a background image in newsprint. I predict that it will be a hot seller... and I'd be happy to take royalties. ;)

The image above is all one stamp. I just used a red marker to outline the border and color in the hearts. The sentiment was stamped again onto printed paper and popped with dimensional foam. The red bird is paper pieced & the wing of the other bird was colored with a marker too.

And... here is the inside of my card. I rarely finish the insides, but I thought I'd go all out on this one. Besides, this green dotted paper is part of some Christmas paper that I'm trying to use up (the other side is full of Christmas trees). :)
