Christmas Bird

Hello.  Welcome.  This is a re-post of my Rubber Dance DT project.  I made a christmas card.  All the stamps are from Rubber Dance

I have used the colours from the Rubber Dance challenge .  Because we are coming up to the silly season this challenge will run for November and December with the chance to win two prizes

I used the large yew stamp from Pine Fir Yew with Stormy Sky distress ink.

Then I used the small yew stamp to fill in my background.

I cut the background with Colour Block die from Taylored Expressions and mounted the cut blocks on a dark blue base card.  If you don't have the die you could use scissors or a craft knife.  The God Jul (merry christmas) is from Norwegian Christmas embossed with blue embossing powder.  

I stamped and embossed the pine branches from Pine Fir Yew and Berry Bird and coloured with distress ink.   I like this, but then I was wondering what it would look like with slightly different colours??

With a red base layer.

With a blue bird and I some Barn Door distress ink.  

So three cards for christmas.  Do you have a favourite??

Don't forget! If you want to buy Rubber Dance stamps you can get 15% discount with my code gail2015
