Winter Bird House by Eret

Hi! It's Eret here to share one older card I haven't showed to you before. I used two Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp sets on it: Winter Bird House #803, Flourishes 2 #520.

I stamped the Winter Bird House with Memento Tuxedo Black ink to the white cardstock and colored it with Promarkers. After coloring I used Spellbinders die from Radiant Rectangle set to cut it out and before removing paper from the die I inked it with Broken China Distress ink. 
I added glue with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen to birds earmuffs and a hat tuft and covered them with Twinkling Clouds Flocking. Snow and snowflakes are covered with same glue but I used Olaf White glitter from Frozen Glitter Set instead of Flocking. Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen was also used to draw a frame to a die cut piece. Glue was covered with Denim Microfine Glitter. Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops was applied to the icicles, bird feeder and the snowballs.

To make the background paper I stamped the biggest flourish from Flourishes #2 stamp set to the white cardstock with  Versamark ink and heat embossed them with Quick Silver Embossing Powder. Then I smudged different Distress Inks (Vintage Photo, Tea Dye, Fired Brick) to the craft mat, spritzed them with water, placed the cardstock to the wet ink, dried the CS and placed it to the ink again. After everything was dry, I sprinkled some Magic Speckle EP on top and heat set from underneath the cardstock. As a final touch I took the Gold Gel Pen and draw some lines near the flourishes.


Bottom edge and the notch on the top of the background was die cutted with Spellbinders die (A2 Scalloped Borders One). Layer underneath it was inked with Scattered Straw Distress ink. I applied Versamark ink on top and heat embossed with Sparkle Embossing Powder.


A bit of greenery is die cutted out of Sticker Paper with MemoryBox die (Flowering Christmas Tree). I covered it with Meadow Spark Glitter.


For the matting layer I took a piece of cardstock and adhered 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape all around the edges and covered it with Denim Microfine Glitter.

Loved all the detail…the extra glitter along the flourish background is an excellent idea.
