"Perfectly Normal Family" Brusho Card


I keep finding cool new stamp companies and cannot resist buying more and more stamps (and dies and accessories- what a fun addiction this is!) This sentiment from Rubbernecker Stamps cracks me up and will be perfect for my sister's birthday card. It is a little small- if you can't read it, click on the card and it should get bigger. I was playing with my Brusho Crystal Colours and decided to try a cling wrap background on regular watercolor paper (rather than glossy paper.) This subtle blue and green background was the result. I sponged black ink through a brass stencil for the birds. I attached a glittery black tape to the left side of a white top folding A2 card, then attached the Brusho piece. The perfect sentiment was stamped on a diagonal green piece and I added some black dots to complete the card.

I am entering this card in the CAS challenge at Simon Says Stamp and the Anything Goes challenge at Simply Papercraft.
