My inspiration was today's Ways to Use It Challenge: Birds (SCS WT172). This Pun Fun bird took flight, was inked in Brilliant Blue and stamped on Whisper White. I stamped him once more on polka dot Jersey Shore paper, snipped out his tummy and mounted it with a Stampin' Dimensional. He's then layered on Brilliant Blue and and Wild Wasabi Textured card stock. Using a Photo Corners Punch, I added a corner accent in Pumpkin Pie and topped it off with some Robin's Nest Dew Drops (Fresh Mowed Grass).
The background is based on Splitcoast's Sketch Challenge (SC182). TIP: Having the 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" squares handy made this background a snap. It can be a bit tricky lining up the squares on the card base (Brilliant Blue Textured card stock). TIP: Rather than trying to measure things out perfectly for alignment, I start in the top left corner and work right or down, each time eyeballing my distance to the edges of the card base and between squares.
TIP: As you finish with the 3rd square to the right, just trim the excess (on the right) of the card base to make the right border even with the rest. I do the same as I work down, too. Make sense? If not, just drop me an email or hit my Live Help button to chat in real time (if I'm on-line). The final card base was 4 9/16" X 4 9/16" square.
