Stack o' Birdies


I love this week's Tuesday Trigger Challenge at the Moxie Fab World.  It's clean and graphic with a lovely, cool colour palette.  There are so many fabulous bird dies out on the market that would work perfectly here but I don't own any of them.  However, the three stacked birdies made me think of this Hero Arts stamp which hasn't seen any ink in a while so I stamped, embossed and paper pieced my way to this little card.  I've seen some awesome takes on the Trigger so far and I'm going to go check out the list and find some more.  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!


Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Certainly Celery, Marina Mist,Lucky Limeade, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Three Birds, Sentiment from Birthday Sayings) Hero Arts
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Clear, Seafoam White) Ranger

such a lovely card Jen. I love the patterns on the birds and your slightly more bolder version of the original colours looks fantastic. I had to improvise as well as don't have any bird dyes
