Song bird

Hello friends.  Thank you for joining us today.

I have a card to share made with the February My Monthly Hero kit. This is quite a small card, less than 5" square, but has a lot in it.


To start I made a wreath of feathers using the 3 inks supplied - Nest, Robin's Egg and Feather.  To this I added a small flower and a few leaves.


I stamped the bird by layering the three inks until I had a colour I was happy with and cut it out with the matching die.  I did the same for the branch then adhered them with foam tape over the wreath.
I added some gel pen accents to the bird's chest to make it more thrush-like, then inked in an eye and the beak.


The sentiment and notes are also from the kit and add a finishing touch.
I love how this turned out and will be making more variations of this card.
