Helloooooo to anyone calling in today. Great to have your company. I hope you are all well. Thank you for your lovely comments on my recent posts.
I bought a few dies in the sale a few weeks ago so I thought I would have a play with them. Anyway, this was a card intended for my Dad for his birthday. Not sure about it yet. I think I made it a bit grungy/dirty and then I dropped it and creased the corner! LOL! I might make him another. It does need a sentiment in the top right corner.
I coloured the background using a hint of paint and a gelli plate. I then stamped the leaves onto the background and added a few paint splatters.
Bascially, I cut out the bird and leaves with the dies and added a bit of colour and glitter. I couldn’t find any beads so I glued on some mustard seeds from the pantry. They did the job.
I was sitting in the kitchen earlier today and saw a flash of colour walk past the window. I couldn’t believe it when I realised what it was. He is absolutely gorgeous. I have never seen a live pheasant this close up. I think he may have been poorly because he wasn’t moving very fast. I put some seed out and he ate a little bit. Sorry photos are not bril.
The photos really don’t show how beautiful he is. His head looked like it had been carved and painted. I know that sounds daft but he didn’t look real. I hope he come back again.
That’s about it from me. Thank you for looking.
