Three Ways to Wish Big

Hello again, friends.  
Today I am using JFF Stamps sets Birdhouse Row H3853 and
Unmounted Sentiments 1 with several different techniques.

Don't you just love the sounds of all the birds in the spring?
We are having glorious weather here 
and the birds are amazing and I was inspired by all their activity.

But before I share my cards with you, don't forget we are having
a spring-themed challenge at Just For Fun Stamps.
It runs all of March and you will want to enter your
own spring card into the mix.

The first card is heat embossed with black embossing powder
and colored in with Twinkling H20's. 
I love the shimmer they give a card.
It's a bold, defined look but give you that "adult coloring book" therapy.

The second card is heat embossed with white embossing powder
and distress inks are rubbed in and around the card.

The third card is heat embossed with white embossing powder
and I created a watercolor wash around on the image.
Then I ironed off the white EP for a dreamy blurred look.
Just remember not to iron off the EP on your sentiment
or your sentiment will be dreamy blurry too!

Well, that's it for today.  Three techniques and uses of different media
with one terrific stamp image.

See you soon!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, as I'm new to this, all visits are such a treat for me! I totally agree about the bird singing, that and the flowers blooming are the only things that remind me its spring, as its raining and the sun is still in a winter slumber I think as its not really showing up often here in South Germany! Love your cards and the use of 3 different techniques with one stamp!
