Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop - TV

Hi there!! Welcome to the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Tea Blog Hop. Today Today we feature cards with a TV or Movie theme.

Birds seem to be sweet and innocuous. They would never do what they did in the Alfred Hitchcock classic, The Birds… would they? Well, our stamps could never turn on us this way, could they? I guess that depends on in whose hands they fall! Bwahahaha! Today, the Feathered Friends and Feathered Homes Stamps Sets have fallen into the wrong hands—mine!

To create my card, I followed these steps:

  1. First, I smooshed some Aqua Pigment Paper into some Blue and Violet Aqua Pigments to create an evening sky background.

  2. Next, I stamped the bird house images from the Feathered Homes stamp set across the panel and drew in extended poles for them with a Tombow Micron Pen. I colored in the images with two Copic markers, letting the stamps’ own shading do the work.

  3. Then, I stamped the larger bird image from the Feathered Friends stamp set onto some white cardstock using Raven Detail ink. And I colored in the image with Neutral Gray Copic markers.

  4. I drew in some tiny birds on the birdhouses with the Mono pen.

  5. Then, I drew a white outline around the images. This detail, looks fantastic on darker backgrounds and gives a spooky look to the card.

  6. I trimmed down the panel and adhered it to a piece of Raven Cardstock. Then, I adhered them both to an A2-sized card base.

  7. Finally, I wrote one of the famous quotes from the movie, “It’s the end of the world,” on a piece of black cardstock, using a white gel pen. I trimmed it down and popped it up on some thin foam tape on the front of the card.
