I made this card for my brother in law's birthday, which was on Thursday. He's into birdwatching so I decided to go with that theme and see where it led me. I started by embossing a piece of card with a Quickutz embossing folder then I cut out the diamond shapes to leave me with a stencil. I masked off part of the stencil and sponged Brushed Corduroy DI over it. I used Tumbled Glass and Broken China DI around the edges. The stamps I've used are a mixture of Elusive Images and PaperArtsy. The bird was stamped onto card that had DI blended over it and then cut out.
The swirl is a Tim Holtz die and I've used Copper EP and done 2 layers and while the second layer was still warm I've stamped into it with a Paper Artsy stamp to give it some texture.
Well after a very rainy night we've got blue skies and sun, which is lovely to see but it is very cold ! I don't think I'll be venturing far today !
Thanks for looking
