Hello, Birdie!

Here's a simple card. No patterned papers, no bling, no buttons. I made this for the Round and Round We Go challenge over at CropStop. I'm not very good at making round cards: don't really know how to dress them up nor to stop them from rolling about! That's a challenge and a half!

I decided not to fuss about with patterned papers, embellishments and such. Instead, I focused on the image and coloured it in with my Caran d'Ache Supracolor pencils. Finally, I added a triple loop bow to finish the card - and that's about as fancy as it gets.

The card measures 3.5".  I used Nellie Snellen's Multi Frame dies MFD011.  The card base is white and I ran it through the Bigshot with Crafts Too "Daisies" embossing folder. Then I inked it with Tim Holtz's "Peeled Paint" Distress Ink.
I stamped the image by Adam Pescott using Memento Tuxedo Black. I coloured it in with Caran d'Ache Supracolors and Zig Detailer Tip Waterbrush. I kept the tip dry-ish because I wanted a grainy / hairy look for texture. 
Uniball White Gell pen helped with the faux stitching.
I adhered each layer with some foam tape, Added the ribbon bow and that's it!

Thanks for stopping by. See you at my next post!
