Flora & Fauna | Linear Pattern Stamping. Bird-Day Card. Photo Tutorial

Hello friends! Whenever I see a good stamp set the first thing I want to make using it is to stamp a pattern (or better yet a few patterns) for future cards. This is exactly how I felt about the Tropical Vibes stamp set from Flora & Fauna – I just wanted to stamp, stamp, stamp!

CARD DETAILS

I’ve already shared one card and stamped pattern using this set, you can see it on my blog here. I loved the image of a parrot and wanted to use it as well – so I stamped a parrot pattern for a quick Birthday card.

I used Simon’s Intense Black ink for my stamping today as this is a Copic marker friendly ink and I knew I’d be coloring these with Copics. I stamped one parrot, next stamped another one right next to it but upside down. I repeated this stamping until I had my 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ panel filled with parrots.

I did skip one image and reserved that space for a sentiment. At first glance this card looks like there’s no sentiment at all, but there’s one hidden in-between all of the colorful parrots.

I decided to break out my brand-new Copic maker colors and go with very light colors. This is not typical for me as I prefer bold and vibrant colors. I used the following colors (these, by the way, are also a part of my favorite Copic marker color combos):

  • B000, B00, B02
  • YG13, YG01, YG00
  • Y00, Y02, Y08
  • RV00, RV10, RV23
  • C5, C3, C1

Once my coloring was done I adhered my stamped panel onto an A2 white card base and embellished it with a few Butterfly Kisses sequins from Simon Says Stamp. I also coated their beaks with Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew (it is better to use Glossy Accents for this as Nuvo Drops might crack when applied over a large area).
