Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with a leafy background for this beautiful bird.

I pulled a gelli print on deli paper background on  from my stash, I stuck the paper to card stock using the extra wide Sookwang tape to give it a little more structure.
I stamped the leaf branch and coloured the leaves with pencils, then stenciled the Lupine flowers. The bird was stamped on the background and again on another piece of card coloured with pencils then fussy cut. Stamping on the background fills in the finer details like some of the feathers on the edge of the stamp.
