Greeting Bird


I made this for the NZ cardswap; we had to use a faux torn mosaic technique.    I didn't enjoy doing this one much, so diecut it and used it for background.  I used one of Tim Holtz bird diecuts (which I really like), inked the edges etc and gave him a twig to help with the nest building (it's spring here and the birds are nesting).  The torn up mosaic snippets are from offcuts of another project.

Bird die: Sizzix/Tim Holtz    

Hexi die: unknown

Rectangle die: unknown

Leaf die: Poppy

Little oval die: unknown

Stencil: sequin waste


Also: D.Inks, black pen, white pen, glitter (randomly on the torn mosaic for some sparkle)

A very arty card and a good way to use up some snippets you weren't originally very keen on!
