Eagle Petroglyph in Cork

Today I'm featuring one of my favorite stamps from The Rubber Cafe. I really love the eagle petroglyph image....he's just a beauty! Masculine cards are often a challenge, so this week I decided to go masculine. I love to add texture, so though he should be carved into stone....for this project he's showcased on cork since it's easier to mail!!

To get a nice crisp and clean image, I stamped the image in Stazon ink onto acetate. I cut the image out leaving a narrow border and applied it to my thin sheet of cork with carefully placed glue dots. This panel is then popped up on a piece of designer paper that resembles stone.

Happy Birthday Outline is stamped and then filled in with black glitter. Eagles have glittery eyes, so I brought that in with the glittery sentiment. I finished the card off with black twill.
