Just a Little Tweet and an Easter Sunday Special Offer

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I stamped the Woodware Little Birdie and the sentiment onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares.

I added Quickie Glue to the cups of the flowers. While the glue was going clear, I painted the leaves with CS Spearmint Pixie Powder and the flower stamens with CS Straw Yellow Pixie Powder using a Water Brush. Once the glue was clear, I added Lavender CS Polished Silk Glitter.

I added a little Candied Apple Distress Crayon from Set 4 to my Craft Sheet and used my Water Brush to pick the colour up to paint in the hearts. I added a little Squeezed Lemonade from the same set to make an orange shade and coloured in the detail on the wings and the head of the bird.

I added Quickie Glue to the body of the bird. Once the glue was clear, I added CS Antique Rose Polished Silk Glitter.

I added more Quickie Glue over my painted bird head and in the side panel. Once dry, I added CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost.

I cut a mat out of Black Card using Sue's Double Pierced Squares and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank. I completed my card by adding some 5mm Black Pearls.

I've set my projects for my next workshop in Milton Keynes on Saturday 6th May. We're making cards for men as they seem to be a problem for alot of people.
