Night Bird Zindorf Style

I love this card. I totally cased it from Michelle Zindorf but when I am able to make something that turns out like this I am so happy. I got the chance to go to one of her workshops in October and have been so thrilled that I did that. I learned a lot that day and came home with three  beautiful cards and the ability to make as many as I want. She has a unique way of using the brayer.
  • Mask off the moon by punching a circle and then moving the punch to get the crescent moon shape on a post it note and applying it to the whisper white card stock before the brayering is done. Remove it and you have a nice bright moon.
  • The two step bird punch is turned into a cardinal by adding that little piece of black card stock by her eye. Then sponge black on the bottom of the bird and the wing and highlight the top with the white gel pen.
