#953 – Birthday Tweetings

Hello and welcome! Half an year has already passed and this month’s first challenge at Seize the Birthday has a new Topping suggested by our local coloring genius TaeEun to be ‘Framed

And thankfully, it has nothing to do with pinning someone with something bad they didn’t do!! All is still well in cardland!! 😀

Keeping poor jokes apart, here’s what I created –

I’ve had these cute pair of Toucans from Reverse Confetti ‘Toucan of Friendship’ forever, and have neglected to use them in card. Here, though, they were a perfect pair to get framed. Small enough to sit inside the frame, and together, large enough to cover the card. 🙂

I stamped them in Versafine Onyx ink and watercolored them using distress inks. I was going for a messy look, but the images are so small, that it just wasn’t happening without leaving half the image uncolored. Instead, I just left a few bits of white showing from the coloring, and then used my white gel pen to add some highlights on the cute pair of birdies. I then fussy cut them and set them aside.

I used watercolor paper for the card, so I could get that extra bit of texture. For making the frame, I chose the largest of My Favorite Things Stitched Wonky Rectangle, cut out the outer border and then used a suitable die from Memory Box Rectangle Basics to cut out the inner piece. I then used Misti to stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set, stamping it after positioning the frame diecut on the card. Finally, I foam mounted the fraem, the birds and the rest of the pieces on the card.

That finished my card. Quick and simple! 🙂 And I’m joining the following challenges –
