Take a sheet of 12 x 12 paper, this could be the plain back of a patterned sheet, a white sheet or one with some pattern if you like. Spray the paper with a tiny spritz of water to help the inks move and then with the Mad Hatter Mint, Delphinium Turquoise, High Maintenance Magenta, Yellow Rose of Texas. You can dry with a heat tool though it will buckle so best to leave under something heavy overnight to flatten again.
Mix four small portions of the Gel Medium with a tiny sprinkle of the Magicals and apply through the stencils in random places. When dry cut the sheet to size to fit four 6 x 6 card blanks and glue them on.
Stamp four of the Katzelkraft Bids onto stamping card, colour with Pitt Brush Pens and cut by hand.
Take any chipboard pieces you have hanging around or for which you have dies and can cut chipboard and apply Versamark all over and heat emboss using your choice of colours. I usually find 2 – 3 layers is needed unless using ultra thick.
Compose your birds and embossed chipboard pieces on your cards adding text or further embellishment. I used Tim Holtz Chit Chat stickers, a text stamp from Every Bird and computer printed text.
