Daring Cardmakers & Friday Sketchers

3 posts in 1 day! I'm exhausted! Friday's Daring Cardmakers challenge was to make a card featuring bird(s) and I followed Friday Sketchers' layout #28, provided by Mumur, to create this. I kept the background plain as there are lots of layers and details on the sketch so I didn't want to overload the card. The stamp is a large one so this is an A5 card. At least that gave me plenty of space to work with. I'm just not happy now about the raffia now: Might have to change that.
Main image coloured with H2Os; bird peel-off coloured with markers, mounted on card and coloured with Distress Inks; other inking round edges and sentiment is Brilliance Cosmic Copper.
