Wetland Birds

It's a new challenge at Make My Monday and this week Rosie has chosen BIRDS for our theme. I had to get up at 7am this morning to make this card - I hate getting up early so I do hope you like my card - please take a look

My background was created directly onto the card base - I masked off the middle so I could sponge my scene and then masked that while I stamped my feathers above and below.
My main panel was also sponged and the bird was cut out separately and attached with dimensions before being carefully lined up with the background (actually that happened by accident and I didn't notice it 'till I just looked at my photo!!)

Materials - Stampin' Up
Stamps: Wetlands, Fine Feathers, Simply Sketched
Ink: Soft Sky, Midnight Muse, Always Artichoke, Early Espresso

    Hugs, Fliss xx
    PS: You're actually lucky to get up at 7 as I have to get up at 6.15 these days!

  2. A great card, Jacqueline - I love how the main design lines up with the background (even if it was a happy accident) - if you hadn't told us we would never have known! Lol.

    Hugz, Jan xx
