Paisley Birds

 
Today is the first chance I've had to play with my new Paisley stamp set. As you can see the smallest Paisley makes a pretty cute little bird. After I put the card together I realized I could have given them little wire legs, maybe next time. I embossed the birds onto metallic copper cardstock with a cream colored embossing powder. As I cut them out, I left a little triangle for their beaks. I'll post some more cards tomorrow.

They remind me of the partridge family birds! Lovely card Michael and I don't think the missing feet are a problem!

You are so clever and yes the wire feet would and will be so neat the next time but I love without them. I think I will need to own these stamps. Thanks. Happy New Year!

These paisley birds are wonderful - love them. Mike, you have a unique way of finding hidden images and multi-uses for your stamps.

Paisleys!! Reminds me of my teen years in the sixties. I definitely need those stamps to add to my Michael Strong Stamp collection. You are so amazing.
