Its my parents 28th Wedding anniversary today (Valentines Day - some may say aww sweet but to be honest I think its a little cheesy lol)
Birds in crafting at the minute are very hot and I think they are adorable.
My parents used to have love birds when I was little so I thought it appropriate to use this on their card.
I didn't have and chipboard birds so I searched online and the lovely Alex AKA Lola Nova had created a template for making a tote bag with this design on the front and as I am not an avid sewer I thought I'd change it up a bit.
If you would like to use the template please click here.
Guess what I used scraps on this project too as I have a box and a carrier bag full.
Apart from using the template I didn't do much, added some faux stitching, a rub on heart I had spare. LOL I have just noticed my birds dont have any eyes - oh well never mind - dont they say love blinds you?
I had a little issue with the stamping as you maybe able to tell. First off I stamped the "Love" in white but my white pad is starting to dry out and I don't have a re-inker (boohoo). The image wasn't very good so I stamped over in Black, it looks ok looks like it has a little white shadow back ground. I didn't have a stamp for the birds section so I cheated as I don't have very stylish hand writing (my writing looks alot like Verdana font!). I wanted script so I printed out the word in Abbeyline font and used tracing paper to get it onto my card. Then I wrote over with a white gel pen hey presto!
Sorry alot of writing and not alot of pictures on this blog.
