this card. And the background stamping came from another demonstrator, France Martin, from her YouTube video here.
I have stamped an image with multiple colors before using markers, but I love this technique!! Using a paper towel spritzed with water, then drop reinkers onto it until the colors all touch each other. So simple, and you can get a little different look each time you ink your stamp!
The feathers are stamped, and die cut, and I added some washi tapes below them. A cute button and a wooden leaf filled in some blank space. I wanted the sentiment to be dark, but not black, so I used the Chocolate Chip ink.
Even though this is a fall card, I like the little bit of turquoise in the background. Thanks so much for having a look today!!

After I made the video, and watched it, I realized I put the eyes going the wrong direction! The one in the video looks like it has evil eyes!! LOL The pic above is the first one I made, and it's eyes are correct! That's what I get for working upside down in the video I guess! Anyway, I hope you like them!

For the card's panel, I stamped the Flowering Flourish with Pear Pizzazz, stamped the sentiment from Choose Happiness with Tangelo twist, then used foam dimensionals to pop up the lantern. I first drew a chain from the lantern to the branch, then decided to use pearls instead, I like that better!
I love my paper punches, and I also love when it has a matching stamp set!! The new Holiday Catalog that Stampin' Up! has out right now has a few new punches that I will be ordering shortly!! ;)
Thanks as always for stopping by!
