Less is more - week 17 - Pick a Square - number 2

Well I couldn't just leave it there and anyway I had these new stamps from Stampers Anonymous to try out.


I masked off the bottom right hand square of the card and then stamped it with the background stamp. I then stamped the bird image which I embossed with black WOW embossing powder. I distressed the edges of the square with Forest green distress ink and added a black pen border.

The sentiment is from the 3 birds Clearly Handstamped collection.

I am also entering the card in the Allsorts Challenge blog - Things with wings
and A spoonful of sugar challenge.

Now should I do a chore or another card?
