Watch The Birdie!

Hello there everyone and I hope you all had a good weekend. It's time for a new challenge today over at Make My Monday with the theme of Birds which is another favourite of mine so many thanks to team mate Rosie for choosing it.
I had a rummage in my bits box for some background paper to go with the image I wanted to use and I hope you like the one I decided on.


I've gone all Stampendous for the card as I just love this cute little chap that I decided to turn into a little blue tit - can you tell how much I'm longing for Spring? I stamped the collage on Ranger manila cardstock with Archival coffee ink and then coloured it with Aquamarkers. I inked round the edges and added a buff coloured matting layer.
The background paper was made with the Stampendous jumbo rosebuds stamped with VersaFine Smokey Gray ink on a piece of hammered texture card. I then rubbed dusty pink and yellow VersaColor ink cubes over the top. Because the card is textured it gives a lovely mottled effect. I then added a little extra colour to the flowers and leaves with pencils.
I assembled the elements on a kraft card blank.

I hope you can join us this week.
Have a great day,
Fliss xx
