Birds with bow

I finally made my first card with a bow tied with a fork.  I'm not real pleased with the bow.  I had to tape it down a lot to make it stay put.  I'll keep working on my technique.  The tutorial is HERE.

This image is from an old PSX stamp from 1996 that I had never used.  I stamped it in Memento rich cocoa ink onto white cardstock.  I colored the flowers, leaves and birds beaks with Prismacolor pencils, trying to keep a soft color.  Ovals are cut with Nestibilities and the background is a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

  1. Lovely cards Velda...yet again...nothing wrong with the bow at all....the garden is beginning to bloom well...we are swamped in spring flowers at the moment. DH cut down a whole wall of ivy which had got out of hand the wall looks so bare but I'd say in a couple of months it will have grown quite a bit again.
