Happy Birthday Bird

Hi there everyone, getting back into the knack of blogging, and making cards, I am entering this card into the Happy Little Stampers : Case the Designer Challenge - Asa Johansson, at I used the same Tim Holtz Bird for the focal point, I used the largest Oval Die from Poppy Stamps Oval Die Set, and for the background I stamped onto an acrylic block ink from a mini Distress Ink "Peeled Paint", sprayed it with water and dipped my card into it, and then dried it with a kitchen towel.   When it was dry I stamped the bird with Ranger Archival Ink, Black, and used Distress Markers, Hickory Smoke, Ground Espresso, Carved Pumpkin and Abandoned Coral, on an acrylic block and used my water pen to colour the bird, I was going to make him a sparrow but a bit of the Abandoned Coral snuck in, and I decided to leave it, as it made me happy to have the colour.   I used a Happy Birthday stamp out of my stash for the sentiment, Hope you like this card, and as always your comments are all gratefully appreciated, thanks for your visit today, Jasann
