Secret Crafters - Our Feathered Friends

Wa Hay! It's my turn to choose this weeks theme at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge this week.  This week I'd like to see cards, or anything else you care to create, relating to

Our Feathered Friends

That could include birds, or even angels!


I've gone way out of my comfort zone with this one & not used any stamps! All the images are created with Marianne Design Creatables. The birdcage & the bird of paradise are available at the Secret Crafters shop, here. The swirls were made with various different MD dies. I went a bit mad with the glitter pen too & covered the bird with Holo Iridescent glitter, also available here. I love that stuff! The background paper is Basic Grey - Wisteria.

.

This is a wierd one, because I can't decide if I like it or not. I like what is on the card, which BTW look much better IRL - this photo stinks! But I feel like thre is something missing & I don't know how to fix it. Anyhow, I'm giving it to my Mum & Dad this weekend as an early Easter card to go with the birdhouse I made a few weeks ago. So I won't have to worry about it for long!!

As always, my lovely D-teamies have excelled themselves, so I hope you'll pop over to the Secret Crafter blog & show them some love, & hopefully play along with us this week.

I am also entering this at the Creative Inspirations challenge this week, where the theme is 'punches & dies'.

So that's all for now. I hope everyone is having a great weekend & enjoying the fab sunshine.
Big Hugs to one & all!
Andie xx

This is gorgeous. The use of the dies instead of stamps is amazing in how to make a card not just different but stunning. Nothing missing that I can see.
