i am using the Soaring Birds Wafer die to create two projects to share with you - a card and an artjournal page.

SOAR


DESTINATION SKY


I  created a colorful background for my page with an array of Pawsitively Saturated inks. I began by stamping the background, then I applied the inks with Simon;s Small Blending brushes. I spritzed it a couple of times, lifting some of the ink. 


I die cut the birds using watercolor paper, and selected coordinating inks to blend on to the parts.


Shades of green...


Warm colors...


Yellow, orange and pink...


Cool colors...


Purple and Blue...


I figured out placement of the soaring birds so there would be good contrast with the colors. Final step was to hand letter the word SOAR onto the page.


For my card, I cut the bird out of some scraps I had leftover in my stash from a precious project. I love how this bird will really blend into its environment.


I layered the bird onto the Tim Holtz Bubble background from a mother project, and layers it onto cardstock and added a couple of words to finish it. 



I hope you've enjoyed my two makes using this beautiful new die from Simon Says Stamp. 
Be sure to check out the entire release and the hops for inspiration!

  7. I'll fly away oh glory, I'll fly away. That's a hymn I like. I absolutely love what you did with this bird. Tell those birds to fly straight to Florida because we don't have any that look like them. Absolutely fantastic. [Bunny]
