Double Inkadinkado Birds

Another “two-fer” day today! I had some time to “just stamp” yesterday, so I was looking through all of my Costco Inkadinkado stamps and noticed this wonderful bird stamp. I did different things with it, but I liked it best either just stamped, or very simply colored. (I don’t think I’ve ever just stamped an image in black before and left it that way!) Anyway, here are my two cards.
For the first one, the image is stamped on a textured, shimmery ivory paper. I mounted it on black, and added black eyelets to the corners. The background is by Lasting Impressions, mounted on black. I couldn’t decide if I wanted the black sheer ribbon or the thin ivory ribbon, so I went with both!

For the second card, I stamped the image on a shimmery white paper and colored it with Stampin’ Up! markers from the Bold Brights family. I mounted it first on shimmery black paper, then textured red, and then another smaller piece of black. The sentiment is also from Inkadinkado.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

I love that black and white card, it is beautiful - that double ribbon is just the right touch! I too don't often leave the stamps uncoloured in (in fact, I never do!) perhaps I should try it one day.

Love those birds. I bought the stamp and haven't used it yet. You gave me a personal challenge now to get it out. I love Cardinals.
