This card features the lovely bird from Nature Walk that I couldn't stop using all summer. Well, there's no need to stop using it - I've put the buddleia away and brought out the autumn foliage from my Autumn Days set. It really changes the whole feel of it! The main panel was sponged using torn paper as a mask, then overstamped. I scored the edges for a bit of definition and mounted it on background paper from the Neutrals Patterns designer paper stack.
Some of the foliage was cut out to make this embellishment. I laid it down on the panel where I wanted it, put a length of linen thread on top, stapled it all to the card stock and tied the linen thread in a bow. The panel was then attached to the card front.
And I thought you might like to see my experimental bird - he's been coloured using the fine end of my markers in a sort of scribbling motion. I quite like the result - he looks sort of sketched in. I've become very attached to this little bird so you'll probably find him popping up in a winter snow scene at some stage too!

In case you're wondering, I did have my hair cut yesterday and it looked rather swish when Jackie, my lovely hairdresser, had finished with it. But sadly, by the time I'd done the school run in a gale force wind, I looked like a comedy act so I didn't bother with a photo (although, with hindsight, you probably could have done with a laugh!)
