I have a thing for birds.  I just... like them.  BTW, just in case you've never seen it, here's a reference:  Put a Bird On It, Portlandia.  Cracks me every.single.time.

Anyhoo, I had to have this Aviary set by Pinkfresh Studio, just cuz of the birds. *sheepish shrug*  All the flora in the set is a bonus. *chinkle*  There's a matching die set for it, but I don't own it so I fussy cut the birdies.

It's kinda rare for me to actually stamp on colored (not white??? *gasp*) card stock, but for this one, it worked out particularly lovely.   Bonus? That Twilight Versafine Clair ink is bleed proof so you can watercolor with it.  I finally bought the new Pinkfresh Studio Watercolors--they are quite lovely--WOW'd me big time!



  • Stamp assortment of twigs/branches and sentiment onto a pale rose card with Twilight (navy) ink.
  • Stamp birds with same Twilight ink onto scrap of watercolor paper.
  • Watercolor birds and trim out; 3D mount to card front as shown.
  • Punch 1/8" hole into gutter crease of card, thread twine through, wrapping twice around card front and tie into a bow.
