Happy Friday crafty friends! My post today features the fantastic new Toucan Do It stamps and dies by My Favorite Things. I mean seriously leg-warmers? Too sweet!
I started with my base panel and some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink in the middle of the panel in an oval formation with my ink blending tool. I then sprayed the area with my Distress sprayer for texture and since it is a Neena 80lbs panel the effect is faint.
I then used the new Heffy Doodle Unbeleafable stencil and selectively blended certain leaves from the full stencil on the sides and top and bottom with a mix of Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Inks.
I stamped my leaves from the Toucan Do It stamp set with the same Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover Oxide Inks with the "rock and roll" technique to avoid harsh lines (Distress Oxide Inks stamp like a dream!)
I stamped my bird with Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink (my go-to Copic friendly ink). I started with the rainbow feathers and the bandana. I then colored the bird and beak. I used the accompanying Die-Namics. I used Nuvo white embossing powder and Lawn Fawn Black cardstock for the sentiment.
I flat glued the leaves to the panel and used foam tape for the bird and the sentiment stripes. I added white Gellyroller accents to the eye, nose and bandana once that was dry I went over the beak and eye with Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I also added some pink Stickles to the bandana and the leg warmers.
I finished everything off with some Sparkling Clear sequins by Pretty Pink Posh. All of the products used are listed and linked below!
Thanks for taking the time have a great weekend! It's a long weekend here in Canada to celebrate Canada Day!
