Another little bird!

Hi everyone! This is a scheduled post as we are off for a quick trip! I'll tell you all about it when we get back!
If you saw my previous post you will know that I was playing with Brushos and AALL and Create stamps by Tracy Evans.

This card is the reason they were on my desk!
I vowed in December that I would make Christmas cards before the rush this year so I am joining the ABC Christmas Challenge with B is for Birds.

I sprinkled the green Brusho on and left a gap in the middle, spritzed it and…this is important…dried it with my heat tool and a bit of dabbing before adding the red and doing the same thing. I wanted to be sure of not making a muddy mix! 
I added the bird in the same way as on my journal page - stamped just the bottom part of the stamp - with just a little bit of the body to line up with, then stamped the body onto card and fussy cut it!

The sentiment I chose means the card could be used to cheer some one up too, but is from a Christmas set by Papermania I bought in a sale.

Thanks for looking, Chris

Loving these little birdies Chris. I like how you keep them black and white, as I told you before, but they look great on those Brusho backgrounds Hope you have a fun little adventure. Hugs-Erika

You are well on your way to having made many cards for Christmas this year. I really like this one, just as I liked the birds you used before. That is such a clever idea.
