Colourful Winter Birds

Hello friends - would it shock you to know I have so many images stamped off that I could colour for a LONG time and not run out - but I am working on that!!  This fabulous bird is from the Winter Birds stamp set designed by for Flourishes,lc by Beverly Cole - it is a favourite!!

I have stamped the Bird image onto Flourishes Classic White card stock using Imagine Memento ink in Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it using Chameleon Art Pens.

It has been fussy cut/ hand cut out and popped up on to patterned paper has been embossed using the Em-bossing Fold'ers Flowers & Leaves and a strip of striped paper added across the lower portion,  The card front has been popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares onto a pre-cut card base.  A computer generated sentiment has been added, followed by a strip of Washi Tape,
