Birdy Stack with a Sentiment


Our wonderful sponsor is Pink Gem Designs

And I used their gorgeous "Birdies in a Row" image to make an slightly unconventionally coloured baby card.

This time I chose to use the pre-coloured image, and printed it onto white card, one edge of which I cut with s/b edgibilities. 

I added some WoS to the birds wings and tail feathers and beaks - to my surprise this darkened the colours slightly. 

The sentiment by STAMPENDOUS (now apparently not available) was stamped using Versamark ink then Peeled paint DI, and clear embossed.
 The feature panel was layered over green dp (source unknown, other than my stash) and onto a cream card base.  All edges were sponged with Peeled Paint DI, and few flat silver sequins added to finish the card.
