Fab Pheasant

Hi there,

It was my DH's birthday yesterday and I had the perfect stamp set to make up his card with. It's the new Autumn Days set from the new SU Catalogue and as he is quite partial to pheasants (both spotting them whilst out driving and also cooking and then eating them) I just knew he would appreciate a card with one on it.

I also got to use the new Window Word Punch for the Birthday Greeting from the Basic Phrases Set, guess I'll be using that set a whole lot more as this punch works really well with it.

Basic Phrases Stamp Set
Word Window Punch
Vintage Brads (Black)
Cream Square Card Base
Taken with Teal Card & Ink
Naturals Ivory Card
Chocolate Chip Card & Ink
Creamy Caramel Ink

I based the card on a project in the new Catalogue - I inked the bird up in chocolate chip, wiped off a little ink from his tail and head with a kitchen towel and then inked those parts - gingerly - with Taken with Teal ink (and rubbed his tummy with teal as well.) He was pretty easy to cut out and after stamping the grasses and adding some torn card as a background, I stuck him down with 3D foam.

See ya,
