Pastel Bird Diva Card by Mandy C

What I used:

White Card
5 x 7 ins white card blank
Cat's Eye Fluid Chalk Ink ~ Dark Moss

1.  Cut a piece of white card big enough to fit the Bird Diva stamp on. Stamp the bird onto the centre of the card with black archival ink.

2.  Colour around the image with watercolour pencils. Using the harlequin pattern from the mini muse set onto the lower edges of the bird card. Edge with black archival.

3.  Take 2 pieces of white card. on one of them spritz with cosmic shimmer mists, leave to dry.  On the second piece of card, paint with the cosmic shimmer paints ~ I’ve used colours that compliment the colours on the ‘bird’ card. Leave to dry.

4.  Mount the bird card onto the turquoise colour card (made with spritzers) Edge with StazOn Stone Gray.

5.  Take the piece of card that you painted onto, cut to size... so it fits onto the card blank with a nice little edge. Firstly, I did think to just mount the bird card directly onto the painted card, it didn’t look ‘right’ so I decided to use a few stamps.

6.  Using the StazOn Stone Gray, stamp the script from the ‘Mini Ornates’ set. Then, again with the Stone Gray, stamp the punchinella stamp from the ‘Bitty Grunge’ set, randomly around the edge. Lastly, using the flourish from the ‘Artful Flight’ and black Archival, edge the card with the stamp.

7.  Using StazOn Stone Gray, edge the card. Then mount onto the card blank and finally edge the card blank with Dark Moss chalk ink.



  1. Fabulous, goreous colours & great choice of stamps
