The background has been made by dipping the ATC in Seedless Preserves ink that I had diluted on an acrylic block. I wanted some extra detail there, so I used a spring stamp with crocuses on a text background and stamped some handwriting around the edges of the card. The bird is mounted on low foam tape. She (or he?) has been stamped on a variety of underpapers in the challenge colours and pieced together. I added some stamping and embossing on the wing because even though it was from a different sheet of underpaper, it was too close to the colour of the body. I used a white sharpie pen to add some detail in the eye and stitches.
Cheers for spring and the "tweet tweet" I am at this moment hearing from outside, though none of our birds are this colourful :)
