Here's another of my Stamping Royalty submissions, this one for birthday cards. I created the big dotty background using Heavenly Blue CS circles that I inked and applied to the Cricut cut scalloped rectangle. That's actual stitching on the center (sanded) Pacific CS band, and the ribbon is Color Ready seam binding sponged with Heavenly Blue ink and topped with a hand-rolled Art Philosophy flower.
The stamp set is an upcoming SOTM (not April,which you can see here) and
Here's a close-up of the tag. I did a lot of detail work on the bird tag. The bird itself is rolled in two ink colors and the legs/beak markered before stamping. I detailed his wing with glitter glitz gel and silver gel pen. Then I paper pieced the strips on his hat, filling in spaces with glitter gel as well. He's got a little Bitty Pearl eye and glitter glitz dots on his heart.
