Birds Birds Birds

Evening all - well what a wondeful day its been (apart from the inevitable filling - yikes £47 later ....). Spent the afternoon with my mum and youngest daughter on the beach at Morecambe - even paddled in the sea - and its still March - would you believe it?

Anyway - thanks again to all you lovely people for leaving me comments and kind words - I really do appreciate it!

This card has been made with my husband in mind as he's a bit of a twitcher - not a fanatic - but he does love to watch the birds from our window and goes to great lengths making birdy cake for them.
I made this card using three images from the papermania urban stamps range and one from the paperartsy range (that's the owl in the middle). I also used a dandelion clock (or is it an alium?) from inkylicious. Everything has been done in black ink - the images stamped in archival black ink and black soot used to distress around the card edges. I've also used a nestie to die cut the images and glossy black card that I initially bought for encaustic art.

I'd like to enter this creation for the following challenges:
Little Miss Muffets Silhouettes Challenge:
The Sunday Stamper bird challenge 198:
Craft your passion monochromatic challenge:
That's all for now folks - see you soon - I hope xx
