Tweetings

We're in the middle of a heatwave here in the UK so for my midweek card I've made a Christmas card!  I decided that I have been neglecting my good intention of making a few Christmas cards per month and today's card is a feeble attempt to increase the numbers (by 1) with a tweet sweet stamp set from Honey Bee called Season's Tweetings (I've used the sentiment of the same name too).

The birds are really cute and could be chicks, penguins or robins so are quite versatile.  I stamped and masked 3 of them in this mini flock and sponged ink around them in Victorian Velvet, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky and Black Soot.




Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Birds: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
  • Greens: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint
  • Sky: Victorian Velvet, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Black Soot
  • Santa Hat: Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany, Iced Spruce

You certainly manage to find some adorable images and these are really 'tweet'. I had to smile at your musings on the name of the font used in the previous post - interesting what goes through our minds sometimes isn't it???
