I steered away from my usual linen card and went for a white leather look textured card instead and layered the bits onto black.
I considered an all over inky bright coloured background and may yet do a couple of small notecards with this wonderful bird before it goes back into it's file, but I wanted a stark card with impact so the basic white and black with a touch of cream it ended up.
I stamped the feathers with Versamark - one onto an old dictionary page and the other just straight onto dark cream paper and fussy cut them both.
The bird and sentiment were stamped twice - once onto the main panel and then again onto a scrap piece of the card. Simply cut with a nestie and positioned on top with foam pads
The feathers were glued at the top near where I tied the twine into the bow.
Quite pleased with this - stamping onto the textured card was a bit tricky as it is quite thickly embossed but overall the stamping hasn't turned out too bad!
