season's tweetings watercolor Card

Made this cute card using Lawn Fawn stamps & water colors.

Stamped each of the 3 Birds & used the dies to cut them out. Stamped branch. Discovered that after stamping a branch & cutting with die that the branch stamp needs to not be straight when stamped or the die will not cut it correctly. So, I cut a branch, placed the stamp inside the cutout area lining it up inside the cutout area, placed the block over the stamp, lifted the stamp up, stamped & then the die cut it out correctly. Stamped tiny music notes. Made sure I had a Zilpoc snack bag handy to place the dies in so I did not lose them in carrying them from the Sizzix BIGkick to where I was crafting at the kitchen table. Stamped sentiment.

Used water colors: Chrome Green on the scarf, hat & ear muffs.

Added stickles on the hat. Used Wink of Stella clear pen on bird's beaks & music notes. Added ribbon.
