They say I'm goin' crazy, They say I got a lot of water in my brain...

YAY! I finally got my picture to upload!

I just have a quick little post for you today; I'm sleepy! The first couple of days back to work after a week of vacation = no stamping time. So here's a card I made a while back for Lindsey's Ways to Use it Challenge to use bird stamps. It's Lila's fault, really...she made me buy this set.

I inked up the birdie from Birds Galore (sadly not in stock at the moment) with three different chalk inks. The bird's belly is inked up with Chestnut Roan cat eye chalk inkpad, then I added Dark brown on the back, top of the head, and tail. The "leaves" are Aquamarine cat's eye and Agean Blue Versamagic. (I find that all my Inkadinkado clear stamps work better with chalk ink.) I stamped him on Pearlized Cream shimmer cardstock and embossed it with my Rectangle Nesties. The card base is an A Muse notcard I got at Stamp Salado in June, and the final touch is the A Muse sentiment (one of my faves!) in the bottom right corner in Dark Brown Colorbox Chalk ink.

Hopefully you guys are having a great week...and fingers crossed for stamping time tomorrow! Thanks for visiting!
