Birds of a Feather ATCs

Here's the ATC's I made for my January swap with Sid. He picked the theme "Birds of a Feather". I used Inkadinkado stamps from a set or singles that I picked up at JoAnn. The local JoAnn doesn't have much scrapbook and stamping items. When I go back to visit my family they have a JoAnn superstore with lots of supplies. I got the two on the left on my recent tip in the $1 area. I picked up 6 others that were pretty neat too. It is like the Studio G $1 stamps. You don't think you are buying much then you realize you've got about 10 of these things in one trip! All three ATC's were made using glossy paper from the Paper Cut and Ranger Distress Inks applied with cut-n-dry foam. They were all embossed with Versa Mark ink and white embossing powder. The last one on the right has two layers of embossing. First the bird in white, then I colored the background in a pale blue by inking directly on a non stick craft sheet and spraying it with water. Then I stamped again using the all over diamond stamp by Lost Coast Designs. I embossed that with clear powder then colored the remaining background with a darker blue. Hope you like them.
Until my next post,
