Hello all, a very beautiful morning in the uk ! This is a card that i have made experimenting with watercolour ! I have stamped the background with ARTEMIO stamps and if you look close up, you will see that i have chain stitched the border,
added a bird that has been cut from an old nature book and used a brad for his eye !
The bird, butterfly and text are coated with Glossy accents....gems on the butterfly
and there you have it.....hope you like what you see, have a wonderful wednesday
where ever you are......xxxxxxx
I'm entering this into the following challenges......
