Bird On A Branch .......

More new techniques for me with this card :o)

The Bird On A Branch stamp set is another favourite of mine. It wasn't love at first sight with this one, but boy once I had seen a few fabulous projects using it, it grew on me really quickly!

The way I've stamped the image is a CASE of another card that I'd spotted while blog hopping way back in May. The design is a beautiful night scene created in black and dark blue, with the bird silhouetted against a full moon. Although the card has the creator's name and blog address on it, the image I saved is so tiny that I can't read it - so apologies if this is yours :o)

The background for the main image has been sponged again - firstly all over with So Saffron ink and then just around the edges with Rich Razzleberry.

To create the larger background piece, I used the Rich Razzleberry ink and the Direct To Paper technique first and then followed this by sponging all over with So Saffron :o)
