Dare I ask, are you ready yet? Me not so much LOL but I will get there in the end. I have a laid back approach to Christmas; we don’t go overboard on food and festivities but just like to spend some quality time with family and friends :) Even with those quite realistic expectations there is still so much to do!
Intriguing right? At first I was planning on going with some negative die cutting with stamping behind, but then I got the fabulous new Bird stamp from Hero Arts – love! So I stamped him in black on a neutral panel of card and gave him a good spritz with some Heidi Swapp seafoam and Mr Huey’s shine. I’ve only recently got into the mists and sprays but I am loving them! The photo above doesn’t really show them very well but you can see them a bit better in this close up shot.
I accented the panel with some stars cut from wood paper and a little silver glitter strip with the swirl of silver thread I am also loving at the moment. I dotted the bird’s eye with black enamel accents too then I stitched the panel to green card cut with the new Simon Says Stamp Postage Stamp Edge Frame dies. On there I white heat embossed a sentiment from the new Hero Arts Enjoy Today set.
