Newton's Birdbath Card

As usual I've waited until the last day to create my card for the Inky Paws Challenge to use Stripes. My crafting table was covered in fabric for a sewing project but I finally finished and cleaned it off. Then I totally messed it up with papercrafting supplies. Oh well! It never stays clean. What fun would a clean table provide?

This is the first time I've used the Newton's Birdbath stamp set and coordinating dies. I love my backyard birds and I love cats, so this is one of my favorite new stamp sets by Newton's Nook. Copic markers were used to color the images. The sky background was created using a brayer with tumbled glass distress ink on white cardstock. The scalloped plaid frame was die cut using frame cutting plate by Taylored Expressions and the green striped grass was punched with a Fiskars grass punch. That pretty much sums it up. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
