More birds on a card today but very different from my previous one. Looking through some boxes of stamps I came across this one which - again - hasn't seen ink for quite a long time. Could this mean that I have too many stamps do you think??? Anyway I used some watercolour card and inks to make a background on which to stamp the birds. Once stamped the square was cut using a die with one slightly larger for a second toning layer. A scrap of card in a tone similar to the image was embossed to pop behind. Finally adding some patterned paper, a lace border and a sentiment.
