CAS-ual Fridays - Birds

Over at CAS-ual Fridays the challenge for this week is birds.

I dusted off my bird punch, and this was my entry:

The bird is cut from DSP using the SU 2 step bird punch, and I have sponged the edges in SU Early Espresso, to add definition.  The swirl is a sizzlit. The sentiment is inkadinkado and the rectangle is Hero arts stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue.  In reality the blue is a lovely sparkly blue, but the photo doesn't really show that, so you'll just have to take my word for it!

My desk is now covered with lots of cut out birds, as I was experimenting with different colours.

Just for fun, I thought I'd show you this one as well. Instead of using DSP, in this one I used some scrap card which was stamped with some text, just to add interest and texture.  The sentiment is a Sizzix phrases medium die.
and finally, thanks for looking and commenting.
