A Bird Builder Twinchie Card


Hi there, a quick post from me today.  I've been glued to the TV (whilst doing my ironing!) watching the Olympics.  My goodness didn't those boys do well in the Triathlon?  I was tired out watching them!

I've made a twinchie card today which was fun and quick to make.  I used my Bird Builder Punch.  First I sponged the branch in Wild Wasabi having made a mask in scrap paper first.  Then sponged in the background using my Sponge Daubers in Wild wasabi and Pumpkin Pie.   My bird was punched out of Pumpkin Pie and I sponged some ink around the bottom and the wing to give dimension.  His eye is Basic Black punched using the Owl Builder Punch.  I added some drops of Crystal Effects to the branch to act as berries.  I then matted my Whisper White square onto a Basic Black square and attached to a 5" by 5" card base.  The sentiment is stamped in Wild Wasabi and is from Petite Pairs.

Right best get back to the rest of the housework probably with one eye on the TV again!!  Thanks for joining me today.
