It’s your bird-day!

The theme at Craft Your Passion this week is Paper Piecing.We have the fabulous AiFactory as our sponsor.Please visit the challenge site to see how to play along and win!Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT’s wonderful work too.

I made a free standing pop-up card using images and the sentiment from This Little Birdie Set II digital stamps by Aifactory.I arranged the sentiment and printed one of the birds on a piece of card then paper pieced the bird.I added the dotted line to make it look like the bird was fluttering away from the nest.I coloured this with Copic Sketch Markers and paper pieced the eggs before cutting it out and adding it to the front.I finished it with an eyelet,some ribbon and my newly acquired baker’s twine.

*Please excuse my rubbish photo.I don’t know why but I just couldn’t get the lighting right and it looks wonky.It REALLY isn’t IRL*
