Watch the Birdie !
At last I've got a new card to share with you! This week's challenge on Less is More is to use diecuts or punched elements.
I still haven't managed to clear a space to craft in yet, but did find a corner of the table to set up my Cuttlebug and found a couple of sets of Marianne's dies to use for this project.
This month's Simply Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine had a lovely set of bird themed stamps as the free gift, a couple of which I used on my card.
The large birdhouse was stamped directly on to the basecard bottom right, and the branch with birds and nest stamped in the top left corner, using black Memento ink. The hanging birdhouse, fence, grass and birds were all diecut using the Marianne's dies and some black cardstock. As a finishing touch, I added little touches of Stardust Stickles to the stamped birdhouse image.
Hope you like it, I'm entering it into this week's LIM challenge, although it might just be a tad too busy to be truly Clean and Simple.
