Kick stand cards

Happy Wednesday! Today I have two cards for the sketch challenge on Splitcoast, which was to make kick stand cards. These are fun to make. Can you tell I like birds? On the first card, the background was stamped using sage shadow, elegant eggplant, and regal rose ink, with stamps from Carte Postale, A Beautiful Thing and Itty Bitty Backgrounds. The stitching is faux.

The circles on both cards are cut with my circles nestabilities in my cuttlebug.

The 2nd card is stamped with a brand new set of acrylic bird stamps, which weren't in the house more than a half hour before they were in the ink. I saw these birds on Amy Westerman's blog and just had to have them - Thanks, Amy! The flock is stamped with eggplant craft ink and the large bird is stamped with rose coral chalk ink, but out and sponged around the edges with groovy guava ink. The swirl from Priceless is stamped on the circle in creamy caramel ink. The brads are made with the mat pack and eggplant marker, and then highlighted with white gel pen.
