Birds of a Feather

I thought I would show a card that I made recently for Stamp Addicts, using one of their new releases which you can get directly from their store or via create and craft.

This is quite a large stamp  - probably about 4 inches across - and my first thought when I saw it was that it would be great for decoupaging.

I chose my papers rom one of the First editions paper pad (Birdsong, funnily enough!) and I stamped the base  directly on to the pink paper and coloured it with pro markers. I then stamped the image on to plain white card to create the decoupage and coloured again with the pro markers before mounting on to my card.
Finally I added a little dash of stickles glitter just for a bit of sparkle.

Here are some challenges that I would like to enter today.......
