DCM Stamp Something

Friday brought Rein's first 'Dare' over on the DCM blog and this is what she said

Bird, Birds and More BirdsI love birds so I'd like you all to make a card featuring birds this week
......a bird in the snow, a birds nest, a carrier pigeon, a white stork or birds in the sky, or...,or... even big bird!
and there was also a sketch from Stamp Something so I decided to combine the two.

The little penguin stamp, from Tanda Stamps, was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed using black Super Sparkle embossing powder by Personal Impressions. His feet and beak were water coloured. The images were simply mounted onto black card and cut out using small scallop scissors. The starry organza ribbon was the last piece of silver I had left on the roll and I've had it for so long I can't remember where it was from! The little snowflakes on the sentiment plaque are Cuttlebug.

I think I maybe making some more to this sketch, simple but effective (a bit like me really LOL)

I may just leave the cards for this evening and have a blog hop instead. Loads of lovely people have left comments on here and I just haven't had the time to get back to them. If you are one of those people then I really am sorry and I really do appreciate all your comments, thank you.

Off to watch Strictly now but will be back in a while.
