Good morning folks, today's card is one that I didn't get round to blogging when the fab Steampunk Birds stamps were released at Chocolate Baroque, I adore these stamps and this one is a particular favourite as I just love parrots too.
The background was made with distress inks in assorted shades of green and overstamped with the fern leaf from the Autumn Fairies stamps. The verse is another old favourite stamp from Chocolate Baroque. I've used a die cut bird card and some little flowers punched from fantasy film left over from making the birdie.
I made the bird using scraps of fantasy film and fibre, inking up the stamp with Gold Stazon and layering the image up to build the colours - this is actually a yellow crowned steampunk amazong lol. Here's my parrot Sammy who was my inspiration for this card
Isn't he a handsome boy? He's a very cheeky chappie too, his favourit trick is to lift his wing up and say 'Tickle Tickle Tickle' bless him :-)
