Three Christmassy Birds

This is the Crafts Too embossing folder with Festive Berries and Broken China (I think) Distress Inks blended over and then sanded to reveal the white card.  The birds stamps are a favourite of mine of Hero Arts from last year.  They are coloured using pencils and sansodor (solvent).  The little greeting is from Craftwork Cards.  I managed to get the back of this card so dirty with inks that I didn't  have the nerve to send it to anyone!  I have now invested in a roll of Eclipse tape to use to cover the backs of my cards during the creative process (ha!)  which  you can peel off to reveal a virgin white back when finished!  That tip from Jennifer McGuire (Hero Arts). I know I could have used temporary adhesive and a piece of paper but it's Christmas and any excuse to buy some more craft stash.  When not wasting my time on facebook or having a glorious time making cards I love to watch Jennifer McGuire's cardmaking videos on Hero Arts blog.  In fact I have several cardmaking dvds which are more fun to watch than most tv, very therapeutic in fact. Thanks for coming by :)
