Re-making the birdies

Chapter: Projects   Series: Bookmarks & Cards

Here are re-makes of this and this card which uses a set of foam mounted stamps. The first card has a watercoloured sky background and foam mounted speech bubble balloons with white-embossed words.

Those numerous mini clouds were die cut from a PP shopping bag.

On this second card, the areas behind the birds and words were coloured with coloured pencils. I drew a grid background using the same colours.
