Hello and thanks for stopping by today! Today is the March Creating Kindness Design Team Blog Hop. Our Guest Designer this month is the wonderful Brian King! We are so happy to have him hopping this month, don’t forget to stop over at his blog (links below) and show some love. Below are links to all of the blogs in this Hop, showing more ideas with how we are inspired in our crafting. Are you excited? I have chosen to create and color a card with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers and the Bird Banter stamp set. The background panel was created last week with my Team members at our February meeting. These stampers inspire me every day so including this panel is perfect.

Bird Banter stamp set
Some of my favorite images are birds. Bird stamps and papercraft supplies are found all over my studio, lol. The idea for this project came from the look of how this glossy panel turned out. The Bird Banter stamp set features a parrot stamp that works well to color with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers! Featuring these two elements in my project helped it come together in a snap!

Glossy White Paper + Rubbing Alcohol
Are you a fan of techniques? Being a bit out of the norm, I like to switch up my routine and share a fun surprise with others. To create this technique, I spritzed a piece of Glossy White Paper with Rubbing Alcohol before adding a few drops from a yellow and blue ink refill. Spritz the drips of color and watch it explode across the paper. The background is a perfect setting for this tropical bird to rest. The results are always unique with this technique, and unpredictable.
