Love is in the air. The month of April is my in-laws anniversary plus there is a new tag to be made for 2012. What's not to love? You can see the wonderful techniques Tim Holtz used for the April Tag here . My entry for the Tag challenge is this Love Birds Anniversary card.
I did not have the bird branch die that Tim used. I did however have the Caged Bird die. I cut the two birds out of this die and inked them using Stormy Sky and Wild Honey distress ink. I added some stickles to their wings for some added sparkle. I used the black Viva Pearl pen on the birds beaks and eyes. I embossed the branch the birds are sitting on using the same technique Tim shows on his blog.
For the background, I did not have any stamps that I thought would work for the technique. I used paper out of a thesaurus with of course the word Love. I glued the thesaurus paper to white cardstock, embossed it with the swirls embossing folder and inked it up with Wild Honey and Broken China Distress Ink.
