As every first Sunday of the month it is time for a new challenge at the Stamping Sensation. This month the theme is Feature a creature. Stamping must be a focal element.

I made this card for my nephew's birthday. I used Sparkle N Sprinkle Wilson stamp set to stamp the birds to the white cardstock. Originally they look a bit sad so I masked off a part of their eyelid. They are colored with Promarkers. Blue bird was fussy cut with scissors. Speech bubbles are printed out and also fussy cut.
Background is stamped with stamp from Viva Decor - Brick & Wood, with Versamark ink to the White cardstock. I heat embossed the pattern with Caramel Embossing Powder and inked the paper with Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso Distress Inks.
Spellbinders Postage Stamp die was used to die cut a hole to the wood pattern panel. With paper trimmer I cut out a square from the Postage Stamp, to make a frame. Left over square was used to die cut out the number '10' with dies from MemoryBox Classic Numbers set.With same dies I die cutted four more set of numbers out of white cardstock. They all ware clued on top of each other.
To make the blue background behind the red bird I covered the bird with a mask. Then I inked all around him with Salty Ocean Distress Ink. Then I placed Want2ScrapClouds Stencil on top and spritzed it with Perfect Pearls Mist. I let the mist to soak in to the paper a bit and then dabbed it off with paper towel. This made the clouds a bit lighter then rest of the sky and gave it a shimmer also. To make the clouds pop out a bit better I used a White Gel Pen to draw a lines around them.
Glossy Accents was added on top of the numbers, birds peaks and some dots to the background.
