Introducing JustRite Backyard Birds

Hello! Last week the Stamper's Dream Team peeked some gorgeous samples of JustRite Stampers latest release. Today JR is officially introducing Backyard Birds on the JustRite Inspiration blog. If you'd like to see all the peeks and today's samples, please visit the JR blog for links to all designers who have made projects with this new set. It is a set of 4 lovely bird images (the American goldfinch, robin, hummingbird, and cardinal) and 4 coordinating borders.

I was so excited when I first saw this set. My absolute favorite bird is the hummingbird! We are lucky to have them year-round here in Arizona. A few years ago, a mother hummingbird even built a nest in one of our trees, so we were able to watch them hatch and grow.. it was just amazing! So, of course I chose to use the hummingbird image on my card:

I wanted the sweet hummer to be the focus of my card, so I attempted to keep my layout simple. I stamped the image using Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic markers: 0, C0, C1, C3, E21. E25, G12, G14, R20, R24, R29. See the links for the ink and markers? In case you haven't heard, JustRite is now carrying the full line of Tsukineko Memento ink pads and a special selection of Copic sketch markers! For more information regarding which colors are being sold (both as singles and as bundles), please see the JustRite announcement HERE.

"Rebirth of Spring" is a sentiment from Nature Nested Sentiments (to be shown in more detail tomorrow!):

Just a reminder... there is still time to get your FREE JustRite 2010 catalog.. details HERE!
