Skating winter bird

For this card I've used another  Bugaboo stamps supplied for my  CHNC challenge 76  'feature a creature' called 'winter birds skate'. I've coloured with copics, rounded the corners and matted on to a gold mirror card shape (with poor light the indoor photo doesn't show the gold mirror to advantage).

I've followed the sketch for Festive Friday 22:

I've used an offcut of woodgrain card for the chevron shape that was originally white and coloured with tea dye DI - this is for Hotshot craft 9: distress inks, also Our creative corner: your favourite Tim Holtz technique (using distress inks). The spotted background paper was from my offcuts box, so this is another for Pixie's crafty snippets 24 and also for Hiding in my craftroom 49: super scraps Saturday. The woodgrain is for Christmas card challenges week 28, also for 365 cards day 91: imagine this: wood.

This is also for:
