I was so excited to have this card coming along well....matching the idea in my head (you know what I mean about that, right?) ....and then after I stamped the bird inside the cage, I went to wipe off the excess ink off the embossed cage and......well, just take a look!! I forgot that the red ink colors seem to take a bit longer to dry....and smeared it all around the bird. Ugh!
I hope you enjoy the design, though, and that it inspires you to try different techniques with your stamps. Notice I was able to use some of the paper from the Holiday Mini Christmas DSP!! And the flowers were made using the 3/4" Circle punch and the 1" Circle punch.
