Tomorrow is a new day card featuring W plus 9


Happy Tuesday!
I'm sharing a pretty birdie card today and will be playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog for the Anything Goes challenge.

I used the beautiful bird stamp from the A New Day stamp set from W plus 9. I love this set & glad I got around to using it finally.

I stamped my image with Versafine ink and colored in with Copic markers. I masked the bird off to protect my coloring and sponged on some broken china distress ink for a subtle background.
I did some quick stitching around the edges (my stitching is never perfect but I'm ok with it)
I used Pistachio Pudding cardstock from Stampin up (I believe it is now retired, sorry!) for my card base and used an edge die also from Stampin up on the side of my card. I adhered a paper doily behind my main panel and added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to finish the card off.

Copics used:
