Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

This is such a fun challenge for mid-May - "Tweet This".  We want to see birds on your project.  Lots of fun stamps to choose from both Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda.  

For this card I used the Whimsical Ruthie and the Carmen's Veranda clear stamp, Best Friends.
I created some bright background papers using my Gelli plate and some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks in green and blue.  I then pressed the Doodle Circles stamp onto my plate before pressing my white paper to the plate so not only did the paint colors transfer but also the image of the circles.

I stamped Ruthie twice on white card stock and cut her out.  I took my painted papers and stamped Ruthie with black ink and cut just her body out.  Then I glued the painted bird bodies onto my stamped images and colored the beak and legs with yellow marker.  I cut two little party hats for my birdies and stamped them with black dots and glued them to my birds.  

My background is a piece of scrapbook paper that I smudged with blue and green Distress Oxide inks then stamped some swirls and little flowers with the same inks.  I glued my birds as shown then stamped my sentiment on white paper, cut it out, and rubbed a bit of blue ink around the edges.  I attached it with some foam tape, inked the edges of the card front with blue ink and affixed it to my white card base.  

A fun and whimsical card good for any occasion - change up the sentiment to Happy Birthday, Thank You, Miss You, etc.
