Stamp Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi Medium onto StickyBack Canvas using a foam stamp.
Add water to Modern Red paint, creating a watery "tea stain" mixture. Brush over your stamped canvas, revealing the image below.
Cut the sticky back into two pieces and face them so that wrong sides are together.
Run the Sticky pieces through the die cutter. Here I used Sizzix "Bird with Vine" die # 655541. If you are only making 1 or 2, You could also freehand cut your bird. But using a die is great when you plan to make a lot!
Remove the paper backing from on side of the bird and place a small amount of batting onto the sticky adhesive
Remove the paper backing from the other bird and then sandwich the two birdies together
Before you seal everything up. Slip in a little ribbon on the top of the bird. Stan kept grabbing my ribbon away!
Sometimes you need to reinforce the edges by gluing with a little Multi Medium, especially if you used a little extra batting.
Repeat the resist technique on another piece of Sticky Back canvas, this time using Classic Teal paint. Cut out shapes for wings. Then remove the paper backing and stick the wings on your birdie.
Cut two "word bubble shapes" and stamp words on them using Archival Jet black ink and letter stamps (HeroArts) Here I've also added some black pen dotted lines and a Gemstone as an eye.
Sandwich the two word bubbles sticky sides together, then open the beak to add it to your ornament
Add to your present for a unique gift tag + ornament! Happy Holidays!!
