A couple of quick cards

 These quickies were taken from one of my favourite time waster websites, in a nice way of course. 

I copied this card from a lady on Splitcoaststampers.  You can see the original here.

This one is a little like the one here.  The background on this one was done by loading ink onto your acrylic block, be careful not to overload it with ink like I did.


With this one I made a template cutting out a rectangle section.  I laid it over the white card stock and sponged three different colours over the white.  Keeping the template in place I stamped the flowers (?) on the bottom.  The cute little birdies where bought from TYPO for $5, bargain hey!!

Ros, these cards are GORGEOUS!
Love yours more than the linked ones :)
It's been a while since I tried this fun technique. I came across some little note/gift cards I made last year using this technique.
I think I might blog them. Need to photograph them first.
Thanks for inspiring me.
Love those Typo birds...I have a set too :)
