Another Christmas card done

Well I have a few more Christmas cards done, yeah.
Sorry for the bad photo, but could not get it right for some reason.

I have a few options for a sentiment on this one, but will wait till I decide who it's going to.
The bird is one of five from the set 'Winter Birds' by Inkadinkado and purchased from
Sheila at http://www.scrappingreatdeals.com/

I stamped it on Whisper white cs with black StazOn, sponged around it with Rangers Distress Ink
' weathered Wood' then cut it out leaving the tips of the feathers out so they would look fluffed out. Added stickles to to his body to add some sparkle, not too visible here, but it is really blingy IRL.
The blue and silver stars are Martha Stewart glitter stickers that I bought last year on a Christmas shopping spree with my buddies Sue and Diane. Can you imagine, I forgot them till the other day.
Anyhoooo, I mounted that on watercolor paper I gave a wash to, added the black stones to each corner. And that's all she wrote, pretty Easy Peasy.


To all my Canadian blogging buddies HAPPY THANKS GIVING
And to everyone else I hope you had a wonderful weekend and an even better week ahead.


Thanks for stopping by and making my day

Out of this world gorgeous!!! I am in love with the colours you got here! Watercolour paper with a wash. You ROCK!!! I must must must try that.

And I love reading about all of the other brilliant details: The way you cut the feathers. (TOO cool!) the sparkle; it looks so intricate! You're knockin' my socks off, but that's ok (they're covered in DroooooL!) ;O)
