Tweet Holiday Wishes

I needed to do a Christmas card for my bird's veterinarian, and I could not resist painting up this stamp image from Your Next Stamp. They are too cute with their Santa Hats.

I first die cut my panel with the wonky rectangles and the arch dies, then stamped my sentiment in the paradise teal. I aligned the panel to my base so I could mask the area I wanted the stencil the snow in. Once dry I attached the panel on foam tape. 

For the birds, I stamped using intense black ink and water coloured using Zig Clean Colour Brushes, adding Wink of Stella to the hat, then die cut the piece with the matching die and attached inside the arch on foam dots and finished with a few clear sequins.

Thank you very much for visiting today.

Love that stamp set, Kia and how you've colored it. It looks great with the window cut out. Such a cute idea!
