TIOT On The Wild Side - Bird card

I am so glad I finished this design piece ahead of time as I have felt really poorly this last week with some sort of non-specific virus which ended up with me losing my voice on Sunday. Just managing to croak a few words but not really feeling up to much - all say 'aaah' !!!

However, back to business and this fortnight at Try It On Tuesday we are asking you to feature animals or birds on your projects. I have used embossed and sanded Kraft Core to make my backing paper. The main image is from a Kanban stamp set - it took 3 attempts to emboss this without getting speckles all over the background!!

It was coloured with promarkers in shades of blue green and lilac (I almost managed to get it to match the paper).

I thought this card would be suitable for a variety of occasions and have purposely left it bling-less so it would work as a male or female card.

So ferociously wild or cuddly and cute, get out your animal images and join us at at Try It On Tuesday.
