Here's my interpretation of Cornelia's card
For the background, I didn't have a "tree round" so I cut a 3" circle from masking paper and used a Hero Arts Sea & Sky Stencil pair with distress ink (pumice stone) to mimic the tree round. I die cut the branch using Memory Box's Woodland Branch die. The bird is from Tim Holtz's collection Stamp/Stencil Mixed Media 8 set. I stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured with copics. I added glossy accents for the eyes and fussy cut the bird. The sentiment is from STAMPlorations Fond Expressions2. I chose this sentiment because it was encouraging, like the sentiments on Cornelia's card.
