More birds

Hi Crafters,

remember the envelope I created the other day. 

I fell in love with that bird, I really liked the look, so I decided to make a matching card - or maybe rather more, because this one will probably be just the first. I thought this could be really nice as a set to give away, with different birds and different sentiments.

Anyway, I stamped and embossed the bird and and coloured him with my water colour set this time, instead of my Inktense pencils for a change. I also picked different colours for a change, but actually I like the red yellow colour combination better.

I wanted him to think or say the sentiment, but I don't have a speech bubble stamp and I didn't want to adhere anything on, so I used a Copic Multiliner and a die cut as a template. Unfortunately this means the sentiment is not embossed, like the bird. I think I need to get a new embossing pen (or a Versamark re-inker). Mine es pretty dried out, which is why I didn't even try to use it.

So, have a good start into the week-end
