Hoppy Birdy

Here's Sharon with a fun tutorial on how she made this stunning quail card!

Hello AI Fans!!

Today I get to show you the fun and oh so "tweet" Hoppy Birdy Set which has just been released at Art Impressions Shop! How fun is this sentiment??!!  You get a large selection of both images AND sentiments in this set!  

I also made a super simple card using another of the images and sentiments in the set.

I started out by stamping both images using my stamp platform.

Then colored them up using Copic markers (colors used are listed below)

After coloring the image, I trimmed it down to size for matting. 

After matting all my layers,  I added mounting tape to the back of my image. 

Added a twine ribbon topped with a button and this card is done! 

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today, and until next time - stay crafty!! 

Copic markers used:
E21, E23, E30, E31, E33, E34, E35, E37, E39, E97
B000, B14
BG13, BG15, BG18
C3, C5, C8
