Earth Day at myStampBOX

Today the design team over at myStampBOX are celebrating Earth Day!



I made a card using one of my new favourite stamp sets called Warm Tweets. I love those little birds. I wanted to make sure that I used something from Nature for an Earth Day inspired project.

I made those swirls on the background of my card by using the butterfly flight path "tails" from the Funky Flowers stamp set. I stamped and embossed them and then coloured over them with distress inks.

To also include a bit of recycling for Earth Day I used some corrugated cardboard as my card base. I actually used some of the box that my new myStampBOX stamps came in! Heehee!


Stamps: myStampBOX (Warm Tweets, Funky Flowers)
Cardstock: SU, Neenah
Ink: Tim Holtz, Memento
Pearls: Recollections
Enamel accents: Ranger
Misc: Versamark, Copics, embossing powder, Nestabilities, cardboard box

Here is a bit of a closeup. This is the first time that I used Enamel accents for the eyes and I really like the effect.



Make sure that you pop over to the myStampBOX blog to see all the other wonderful Earth Day creations from the rest of the design team.
