Blue Bird Picture

This bird stamp is a favorite of mine so when I decided to make a framed piece this was perfect.

 I had picked up the frame at Hobby Lobby a while back.
First I stamped the images on Watercolor Paper with StazOn ink and then water colored with Baja Breeze, Bashful Blue, Sahara Sand, Pink Pirouette and Daffodil Delight ink, then sponged with Sahara Sand Ink and spattered with Soft Suede and Baja Breeze Ink using a Color Spritzer tool.

I cut a piece of On Board (chip board) the same size to add more dimension to my project. I used Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to attach the layers.

I added some Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details to the birds wings to give them shimmer and also ran it around the outside to cover the exposed edges of the On Board Chip Board.

I used the Ribbon Punch to create an edge with Basic Black Card Stock.

 A bow tied from Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon (another personal fav) attached with a Glue Dot is the finishing touch.

The glass was glued into the frame so I had to get creative here - 3-D. I added a 5"X7" piece of Baja Breeze Card Stock inside the frame and then attached my art piece to the front of the glass using Glue Dots.

I'm loving how it turned out!
