Brutus Monroe DT – Birds of a Feather Inspiration

Hey friends!

I’m back with another card for you today. I wanted to share some inspiration to keep you going on this month’s Inspiration Box, Birds of a Feather. If you haven’t heard about the Inspiration Box from Brutus Monroe before, it’s a monthly subscription service where you receive a box jam packed with goodies each month.

Even better, if you subscribe – you’re guaranteed to receive your box each month without worrying about it selling out and you also receive an exclusive 15% discount of your everyday purchases with Brutus Monroe.

Alright, let’s get into this card! To start things off, I grabbed some alabaster cardstock and my Mini MISTI. I used the beautiful feather stamps from Birds of a Feather to stamp along the top of my card front in Raven Detail Ink. I shifted my cardstock over a little and stamped again with a light grey ink. I turned my paper around 180 degrees and repeated this same process so I would have the same pattern on the top and bottom.

I also stamped the sentiment, ‘Birds of a feather,’ in embossing ink. I heat set this with Gilded Embossing Powder and my heat tool. It’s so gorgeous how the gold shines!

Next, I colored the feathers stamped in black with Copic markers. I used soft, but vibrant, colors for a pretty bohemian feel. I also used a few Tombow markers to get some droplets of color in the center area of my card front. I did this by scribbling the markers on my media mat, spritzing with water, and then using the Tim Holtz Splatter Brush to flick on the color.

I added some pretty blue-green jute twine to my card – I wrapped it around a few times and used the Craft Glue to secure it. I also tied a cute little bow and adhered that with Craft Glue as well. White I was tying on my twine, I added the adorable peacock charm from the Inspiration Box. I love how that gives the card a little extra excitement. To finish off the card, I added a few of the included Rhinestone Crystals. These have adhesive backs, so they’re a breeze to add to your card. I mounted my card base with foam tape on to the gorgeous cardstock included in the kit.
