Another birdhouse...

& a third attempt at this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: selective inking:


This is the fifth birdhouse that Sage & I made. I used Papertrey Ink Hawaiian Shores cardstock and My Mind's Eye patterned paper. The ribbon is SEI and the button and twine are PRI. This birdhouse was originally suppose to be for me, but this morning, when I woke up and thought about how today was my boys' last piano lessons of the school year, I realized that I'd forgotten to get something for their teacher. So I quickly made a tag & filled the house with some Dove chocolates (the ones with peanut butter in them-- my friend, Susan, had brought these back for me from the States, so it was a little hard to part with them!)


For the tag, I selectively inked the legs of the bird stamp from Grunge Me for the birdhouse post. The sentiment stamp and birdhouse are from Tag It's #2. I also selectively inked the top of the house in VersaMagic Turquoise Gem and the bottom in VersaFine black ink. I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

Thanks for looking!
