I couldn't wait to play with two new sets of stamps tonight. I didn't give a lot of thought for a card. Merely a chance to play with 3 stamps and some masking. I don't feel that cards always need a sentiment. Simple note cards are often just the ticket for a nice note to someone without a specific theme.
The flight of birds background is from Vintage Era Background and the two tags are from The Garden (What-not) Collection. I bought the Vintage set mainly for the birds but all the stamps will be fun to be creative with. But those birds really got me.
I stamped the tags first onto card stock and then masked them with Eclipse paper before over stamping with the bird stamp. So simple. The background for the tag with the glasses was easily done with JudiKins Dusters (short stubby brushes that look like shaving brushes) and Distress Inks.
The birds on the second card were stamped in my homemade pad of multi-Distress Inks.
Thanks for looking and your comments.
