Bird Card for 2 Challenges

Sorry about this, third post of the morning but this one had to be done as one of the challenges expires today.

This one is for: Critter Sketch Challenge #50 and Crafty Catz Weekly challenge #68- Tartan/Plaid.

The two bird stamps are from Elusive Images.

The birds on the bird bath were stamped with Versamark onto the yellow card and embossed with a coppery embossing powder from Cosmic Shimmer. It was cut out with a Nestie and the edges tinted with Antique Linen and Rusty Hinge Distress ink whilst it was still in the die so that a yellow edge was maintained. This was mounted onto a larger scalloped Nestie shape in copper mirror card. The small birds were stamped  onto glossy card which had been brayered using ink from Spice Big 'n' Juicy. Once dry, they were cut out and mounted on copper mirror card Nestie Shapes.

The plaid paper had two circles and on border cut out with Nesties and all of these were mounted onto copper mirror card.

All of these elements were mounted onto an A5 size yellow card blank to fit to the sketch of the Critter challenge.
