A little Bird told me there's a challenge

... at LiM with a fabulous prize and the remit is to 'use a RUBBER STAMP In addition if you could use watercolours that would be wonderful!' 

...........Fitting in nicely with a simple birthday card I want to make this week for my Daughter's Mother in Law...and I had decided to use my new stamp for the first time, a little bird composed of newsprint, the idea of using watercolours appealed as it gave me a chance to think of a way to pretty the little bird up so I ended up with a simple but more colourful card than black and white newsprint would initially suggest.

The sentiment I computer generated, added a stamp of the bird, I then coloured in a small piece of card with a few strokes of watercolour paint, dried it then overstamped the bird again and cut the simple shape out (without legs...layering it over the legs of the one on the card, simple...not too sure about the pearls, sequin button etc but I know she will like them, so here it is......

 Not a very good photo, sorry

                                      And a little close up of the watercoloured bird stamp...isn't he lovely!
