NBUS Challenge 6


I'm popping in to share a card I made for the lovely Darnell's fun NBUS challenge 6!

I couldn't bear to miss it even though my mojo has gone on a winter break, no doubt to get away from the cold.
My NBUS item it the Paper Smooches Bird House die I just received

I even used some patterned paper on this... that paper is really stacking up. I buy it 'cos it's pretty and then it just sits there...

I cut one of the 2 bird houses that comes in the set, layered it up then coloured it with a copic - It's a linen type CS which gives it some texture. The leaves (coloured with copics) were in my bits box along with the grass and the glossy birds are from a Memory Box set, I kind of preferred them to the one's that came with the dies

 Just a little tip for you ... sometimes I want a glossy finish to a die cut but those little ones are quite fiddly so rather than use Glossy Accents or something similar I smoosh the CS with VersaMark add clear E/B then heat. Let it cool and then cut out my die...Voila!

I hope you have a lovely day / evening

Till soon
