I embossed the flower background on TH Coordination paper, sanded, then sponged the embossed areas with Spiced Marmalade distress ink. In real life, the coordination paper is teal colour to match the bird - don't understand why cameras sometimes change the colour of things - depending on light conditions, I suppose! On printed paper, I used a new Martha Stewart Daisy large edge punch.
For the bird image (Hero Arts "Timely Bird"), I coloured the image directly on the rubber with SU markers, then stamped it on watercolour paper. Using a wet watercolour brush, I then went over the bird, moving the ink around to paint it. Over the top of the image, I stamped a script stamp in versamark, then embossed with white EP. Also I sponged TH Tea Dye distress ink around the torn edge.
The label is a new TH alterations movers and shapers die from Santa that I layered with an oval and rounded rectangle (SU punch) on which is stamped Thank you. Some small prima flowers & pearls finishes the card.
