Reverse Stamping and a step outside my comfort zone!

So - for our August Club we did Reverse Image Stamping as our technique for this month.  This is really super easy to do with our Stamparatus - but I wanted to demonstrate how easy it is to do with just our silicone mat.  So for club that was the route we went -

But then here is where (with a little push from my granddaughter Paisley) I stepped out of my comfort zone.  I did my very first YouTube video - I would love for you guys to check it out and subscribe to my channel - as this is the first of many to come.  At first I did not want to even post it, as I had my camera going the wrong way - but after watching it still works.  So --- I figure it was my first - and I'll be able to look back on it some day and laugh lol! Here it is below - and you can go to this link if you want to find it on YouTube and subscribe -
So here is the card I made with this little birdies from the video - I had seen another card with the hole cut out and some thing embossed behind it and it reminded me of a birdhouse.  I thought it was perfect for a wedding card - these two little chickadees are setting up house. The layer of Crumb Cake that is embossed is put on with dimensionals - so there is actually a little space between those layers - which I love.
Above you can see how I stamped the envelope - and here is the inside of the card - I left that embossed layer showing on the inside too.  I think it is really pretty and this side shows the debossed section of it.
To color my birdies I used the limited time set of watercolor pencils that is available for August.  Don't miss out on these beautiful colors if you like watercoloring - as they are lovely! 
Hope you all have an amazing, creative day!  See ya'll soon - and let me know if you try the Reverse Image stamping and how it goes!  ~Maureen
