Feathered Friends

      We have another selection of Christmas cards made with Bugaboo digital stamps for you over on Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra. We are a multi craft challenge so it doesn't have to be a card, it just has to be for Christmas, so please come and join us.
     My chosen stamp this month is Winter Bird Trio, three very cute feathered friends huddled together on a decorated branch. I have used alcohol markers to colour the birds, I've only just started using these pens so my efforts are slowly improving (very slowly!). There are little highlights on the snowflakes made with a clear Sakura gel pen which don't show too well in the photo, sorry.  I did try different angles but sparkle is quite hard to capture.
     The baubles have Glossy Accents added so they shine, that thankfully does show up well!
     For the background layer I have used my only Punch Around The Page set from Martha Stewart. I have put my instruction sheet somewhere safe I can't find it!!!  So I went on line and downloaded a new copy, this time it's A4 size. I also decided to make the first two measurements in copy paper so that next time I use it I don't have to spend ages checking my sizes, then I laminated it with the instructions on the front, hopefully I won't file this one away too securely!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Digi Haven - Snow Buddies
Winter Wonderland - Digi Days

  7. Those little birds are very cute! And the ivy border is such a fun touch! Don't you hate it when you put something somewhere "safe" and then can't remember where it is!!?? It happens more often than I care to admit. But you came up with an awesome idea to prevent it from happening again. Genius to add measurements and laminate it.
