Thank You Card with Linnie Blooms Canvas Bird Shapes!

I am so in love with the Linnie Blooms Canvas Bird Shapes! I thought I would add one to a Thank you card I created and it looks wonderful! Take a look:

For this bird I used acrylic paint first.  Then I added Tattered Angels Glaze for a shimmer look.  I then stamped the bird with Versafine Ink.  Then I used a Linnie Blooms leaf shape for the wing.  I added the acrylic paint, topped it with a bit of white to lighten it up and then the glaze for shimmer.  That’s it! 

Here’s a close up on the bird.

To purchase and see more Linnie Bloom shapes, please visit the Linnie Blooms Store.

Happy Crafting!

I used BasicGrey Hey Boy Collection with a mix of BG Hey You embellishments. I also used Washi Tape, Twine and Wood Veneers from the Paper Secret Store.  The twist is to use an embossing folder. I used it on the tag and the circle under the "totally Awesome" sticker.
