Today's card didn't photograph very well - the white flowers look way brighter than they really are. Believe it or not but this card started as a napkin! The centre block is cut from a napkin with paper clay added under the bird to create a 3-D look. Once everything had dried enough I added touches of H2O's to the bird & surrounding flora to create a bit of shine.
Debi as she taught this technique at a class at Country Lane Scrapbooking. My only complaint about how the bird worked out is that the backing cardstock wasn't thick enough and so it warped as it dried. I was able to flatten it enough through the use of lots of Sookwang tape and a heavy book but I also matte the image several times to give it even more stability.
To turn the bird into a card I used the sketch at Sketch Saturday - I like how the ribbon is woven through the layers of matting. The background paper is Basic Grey plus gold foil paper and brown cardstock from my stash.
