Clearly Besotted Teasers | Birds of a Feather

Hello there and welcome to day four of the Clearly Besotted July 2019 Teasers. I am back with one last teaser to share with you before the release of the new sets tomorrow. My card today uses the new Birds Of A Feather Set. This set is full of different birds, accessories and sentiments.

I started off by stamping the parrot and toucan from the Clearly Besotted Birds Of A Feather Stamp Set, along with the flower and leaf image (which I stamped twice), on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then stamped a further leaf from the Clearly Besotted Some Birdie Loves Me Stamp Set. These were coloured with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area), fussy cut out with scissors and set aside while I worked on my background.
I took a panel of 4.75" x 4.75" white cardstock and cut three hexagons from it using the Wplus9 Clear Cut Stackers Hexagon Dies. I placed the panel over a 5" square card base and drew faint pencil lines inside of the hexagon windows. I then placed Post-It tape around these and erased the lines. Using blending brushes, I blended Distress Inks into the openings. I used Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron for the green hexagon, Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade for the yellow and Mermaid Lagoon for the blue.
The Post-It tape was removed and the panel added to the card base with foam tape. I then adhered the images on top with a combination of foam tape and tape runner. I took the sentiment from the Birds Of A Feather Stamp Set and stamped it three times on to black cardstock (masking off the individual words as I went so that I could separate the sentiment into three strips) with Versamark Ink. I applied Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set.
They were then cut in to strips and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added white gel pen dots and highlights to the images and black glaze pen to the eyes of the birds.
