Fantasy Stampers - Watch the Birdie

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

The weekend is here! Our daughter is staying wedding planning will ensue.

Well today a new challenge starts on the Fantasy Stampers Challenge Blog and the new theme is Watch the Birdie. This is a good theme and it could include Christmas cards which I know I and many others are  very keen to make at the moment. Christmas will be here before we know it.

I created the background  for this card with Pixie powders on water colour card. 

This is the House Martin stamp from Clarity stamps. The birds were stamped with Black Archival onto water colour card and then coloured with my black Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen. I used a brush and some water to draw out the colour. The birds were cut out by hand. 

This is a Visible Image stamp just stamped in black straight on to the background.  

I did enjoy making this card. Why not have a go at our challenge. 

Enjoy your weekend.

Take care.

Hugs Jackie
