Of course, it’s not the bird that’s yellow, but I love the combination of deep yellow, cream, and black. And this bird image is just stunning in black. I have been stamping line images in Stazon Jet Black because the black is so deep, but when I was at Stampin’ Up! Leadership a few weeks ago, I used a brand new Basic Black pad and was shocked at the color. No purple cast at all. So by golly I got myself a new one, too, and it hasn’t disappointed.
These delicate birdcages were stamped in Very Vanilla Craft ink, just as in yesterday’s card. Just a reminder (again): you will notice an amazing difference when you heat set Craft ink instead of letting it dry naturally.
This button doesn’t have the brad glued to it, like my magnets do; I pinched the lace ribbon with the brad behind the button before poking the prongs through the stamped panel. Even with a pretty flat bow, this is a lumpy card. We’ll see if someone gets it handed to them or it’s saved for display!
