It's a very chilly Monday morning here in the UK - but the sun is shining and it's so much nicer than grey wet days.  I've been busy over the weekend re-siting my craft from from an upstairs room to a downstairs room.  It took both days over the weekend to get it all sorted - and quite stressful really.  The scary thing is my house is on the market for sale - I have no idea how long it will take to get ready for a house move if just moving my crafting stuff took two days-Gulp!

Anyway one good thing about having a sort out is the things you find which for me was a stamp set I'd never inked - I can't even remember where I got it and it hasn't got a name on it but it's such a lovely set that I thought I'd have a play.  It has main images of a bird, hare and a fox and I chose to use the bird for my card.

I'm playing along with The Paper Players PP426 and using their sketch.

I used some Stampin Up Card stock for my base and the papers are from Kaisercraft Take Note.  The bird was coloured in with SU In-Colours from 2016 I think - they weren't my favourite colours but they do look quite good on this bird.  I used some Spectrum Noir over parts of the bird to give it a bit of sparkle.  I'm going to be having another play with this set.

Wow! I love this beautiful bird! It does indeed have a country feel to it. All of the colors work so well together, too. Thank you for sharing with The Paper Players!
