I started by making a smooshed background using a piece of white card and Iced Spruce and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks on my glass mat, spritzed with water and the paper laid over it, using one colour at a time to build up the layers of colour and I added the script stamped with the Tumbled Glass. When dry I stamped the pretty bird using Versafine Smokey Gray Ink and and coloured it with my Inktense Pencils picking up the colour from the tip with a waterbrush, and when finished I added a little orange around the bird's chest straight from the pencil. I also added a few clouds to the sky with more of the Tumbled Glass using a home made cloud mask, and the sun using Adirondack Sunshine Yellow applied with a blending tool, and finally some Glossy Accents on the berries and the bird's eye. I layered it on to the white stitched mat and added a sentiment to the base card using the Smokey Gray Ink and heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder before adding the topper to the card.
