Hobby Art Waters Edge Birthday Card

Good afternoon.  Hope you are keeping safe and well.  

Today is the OH birthday and his card always has to have a bird theme.

This year's card has a few waders pottering about on the waters edge.

I have used
A couple of images from the Hobby Art Waters Edge stamp set that have been coloured with copics.
The background is blended distress oxides.

The birds have been fussy cut and mounted on the card with 3D foam.  It doesn't look like it on this photo, they look quite flat but they are raised up.

The only comment OH made was 'What waders are they supposed to be' not quite the reaction I was hoping for.

Oh well better luck next year.

Thanks for taking the time to visit by my blog and I'll see you soon.
