A Little Bird

Here is a card that I made for this weeks less is more challenge.

024

The theme is congratulations or thank you. I chose to use a lovely set of Paper Artsy stamps called Flora & Fauna 4.

To start with I stamped the bird onto the card base then I stamped it again onto grey paper and green paper and cutting out the leaves and the bird I stuck them on to the bird on the card base. I stamped an extra wing and a leaf with I layered up with foam pads I did the same process in the top corner this time using pink spotty paper.

026

I finished off by adding little dots of Liquid Pearls for the berries  but looking at this photo in detail I can see that I have missed a few……oh well back to the craft desk for me!

Cute card Jeannie!
I've often found that liquid pearls go a funny shape as they dry... you did miss a few didn't you! It's very difficult to spot when you're actually doing it !
Thanks for your submission
