  DSC00385 copy

I created the background by stamping the leaf image with kraft ink randomly. I die cut the two birds then stamped them with dark chocolate ink and popped them up over the rectangle which was sponged and stitched. Brown twine and a button finish off the card.

Check out some more fabulous samples made by our talented DT in the thumbnails below.
