Welcome back to the My Favorite Things January Release Countdown! We’re are down to Day 4 and today we’re introducing the newest Birdie Brown set called BB Viking. A little different from the usual large sets, this month’s BB set is a mini stamp set featuring this cute.. wait I mean strong, musky viking!
The set is also accompanied with 3 various sentiment puns for different occasions. The nice, large image makes it great to fill up a card as the center piece. I stamped the viking in Milk Chocolate hybrid ink and colored him with copic markers. I also used a white gel pen for some highlights. Then, I die cut the image out with the coordinating die-namics.
Also part of this month’s release is the new Die-namics Linked Chain Oval Frames. I used the largest size of the frames and die cut it once out of white cardstock and once out of kraft card stock. I inlaid the white frame into the kraft panel, and set it aside for now.
Next, I worked on the background. On one piece, I blended on Seedless Preserves distress ink from the top and added splatter with the same ink. I had the color fade out approximately in the middle. Then, I heat embossed my sentiment in white in the top center. On a separate piece, I blended Mowed Lawn and Forest Moss distress inks and used Forest Moss to add splatter. I then die cut this piece with Die-namics Grassy Edges. I adhered the grass directly onto the purple background.I adhered the viking in the center with foam tape, then framed him up with kraft panel also propped up with foam tape.
