CCT animal magic: 'Birdie-ful'

We want to see animals this week over on CCT. So of all the animal stamps I had, guess what I went for? . . . yup, this tiny lil fella that was in my WoJ spring kit (it was the first thing that caught my eye even amongst all the other bigger images. Yes I know, all those cute images and this lil fella called out to me LOL)

Sorry about the poor photos it was nice and sunny yesterday so it's bleached out the colours a bit. The close up isn't much better either and I wanted to show the sparkle on the birdie and the flowers . .

  • Images: Birdie and basket are seperate stamps, as is the background grassy knoll and the sentiment - all Whiff of Joy stamps. Birdie and basket cut out seperately, curved and raised with silicone glue over the background which was cut out with oval nesties
  • Colouring: Copics with twinkling H2O over the birdie and stickles on the flowers.
  • Papers: digital papers from kit at Sweet shoppe designs. This is from the 'Bloom & Grow' kit by Zoe pearn - which I only came to realise is who designs some of the yummy MME papers! (May use up ink but it's easier to chop up the papers knowing I can print more out LOL)
  • Others: Oval nesties, EK retro flower punches, MS 'frond' leaf punch, brads and faux stitching with a perganamo piercing wheelie thing (don't know proper name sorry!) I've had for years which I run around the border to imitate stitching holes then I just draw stitches over it - in this case with white gel pen. Not as good as the real thing but it's the next best plus it's only the size of a pen and takes less time.

Will be back later to post another WoJ card. Until then byeee!
