I'm back!

Who stole the last three months? I haven't been idle in that time though and I have a long list of projects to "show and tell" over the next couple of weeks.

Way back at the beginning of August Sara of Cardmaking Paradise set us the challenge to use her new birdhouse templates. So I made this birdhouse hanging.

For the background I used the wrinkle free distress technique which was partially over stamped with a script and embossed. Some dots were added through sequin waste and Inka Gold applied randomly.


It's not very clear in the photo but the bird was covered in UTEE and with some gold embossing powder along the tips of the wings.
