My sister's birthday is July 4th, and she has this thing for birds. Every year for Christmas, I try to find her a small bird ornament to add to her collection. She has bird houses and a few bird decorations around her house, but outside of the Christmas ornaments, she really doesn't want any more bird presents. Instead, she got a bird card for her birthday.
Operation Write Home Blog Tour. We were supposed to make a birthday card. Using Red, White and Blue were optional. I wanted to use those colors but in a way that didn't look patriotic. I've been wanting to try out the technique where you put drops of re-inker on several sheets of baby wipes to create your own ink pad. As you can see, I went a little crazy using my "ink pad" for the background, birds and to custom color a white grosgrain ribbon. A very unique look and lots of fun.
Until next time,
