Isn’t this little birdy just the cutest?  I love the fact that he’s in a postage stamp frame–I have a thing for postage related images.  Dunno why, just do.

Normally, I don’t ever stamp/decorate envelopes for my cards–I just figure they’re gonna get ripped up and tossed anyway . . . (duckin’ and runnin’ fer cover!), but I had to use the circular birdy image, too–it’s just so irresistible!!!  I also omitted everything but the outer frame on the birdy post image, to make a spot for putting the REAL postage stamp!

Omitting, as a stamping technique, has been around for eons, and means:  inking only certain parts of an image, as opposed to the entire image. But, apparently, it’s being given a new name:  "faux masking" . . .


I guess I just don’t understand the purpose of giving something that’s been around forever in art-stamping a new name . . .   So . . .  I ain’t gonna do it. Nuh uuuh, can’t make me! That’s right:    Julie refuses! (hair flip!)


Getting back on topic . . . I glittered da’ birdy with the Pee Wee Transparent Glitter Kit I picked up down at the A Muse Shop–eeek, waaaay back early summer–I know, I know–shoulda’ busted it out long ago, cuz that gliddaaaaah is so dang purrrrrdeeeeee!!! . . . Well, I’ve drivelled on and on enough, and must get back to work . . .

  1. :lol: I don’t think I’ll call it faux masking either. Nice job!

  2. This is beautiful! I love your layout and the sparkly birdie!!
