This card is for the birds!

Haha, can you tell I'm in love with my new aviary stamp set?

Here's another card for the H! monochromatic challenge. Although it doesn't look to monochromatic to me, with all the black and white. Oh well!

I started with a white card base, and added red and black layers (the corners of which are punched with my ticket corner punch). I didn't have any red brads, so I used eyelets for each corner.

It's hard to see, but that's faux-stitching on the black layer. I used my paper piercer to create the holes, and then my Sakura white glaze pen to draw the "stitches". Some red ribbon wrapped around that, with red staples and a large red brad. Then a smaller layer of red, with more ticket corners and the edges dragged in red. White cardstock for the stamped bird/branch, with even more ticket corners (love that punch!) and red edges. I stamped the bird on the white paper, and then on red pp (which was some awful heart paper from one of those huge paper pads). I cut out the body of the bird from the red paper, and attached it to the white stamped image. I love how it looks watercoloured! Finally, a sentiment from the same set, and all popped up on top of the ribbon.

I love your bird cards! I have always been a bird fan. I asked for a bird feeder for my birthday this year so I can do some bird watching out my bedroom window!
