Hello Brutus Monroe fans! Betsy on the blog today sharing this
super fun card using the Birdhouse Scene Builder Die Set!
If you are new to scene building with dies you are in for a treat with this Birdhouse Scene Builder die set! So many ways to use these dies. Let me show you how I created this fun scene!
I first picked out all of my card stock. I had a pretty good idea of how I wanted this project to look - bright and fun - so I chose card stock that reflected that.
I wanted plenty of room to place my elements, so I chose to make a 5" x 7" card and made a base from white card stock. My aqua panel would be my "sky" and I cut that to 4" x 6"...knowing that I would place my bits and pieces on and outside that panel.
I next die cut all of my pieces...there were a lot! Once I had them die cut, I
inked them to give a bit of depth.
I used a matching Simon Hurley Ink to do all of my ink blending. And used small ink blending brushes. I didn't end up using all of the pieces, but close!
I used Glitterstock for my birds so I did not ink blend them. Once all of these pieces were done, I ink blended the aqua background panel with some green at the bottom and I die cut a few puffy clouds.
Next it was time to start adhering down my elements, I start with the birdhouses.
I added the bird holes, birds and flowers next.
I added the leaves next. I also used the Slimline Sentiment Die set for my greeting. I die cut the shadow from vellum and the letters from Glitterstock.
I finished up by adding the wings on my birds. I could have kept going with bling white gel pen, etc. But sometimes you just have to stop. I didn't want my project to get too overcrowded and confusing to look at.
I hope you enjoyed my project today! Super fun to make! Thanks for joining me today!
