Bird Banter | #WWYS161

Welcome to this week at What Will You Stamp? We are showcasing the Bird Banter set from the Occasions Catalogue:
 Bird Banter by Stampin Up

This set has lots of cute bird images and sentiments with "puns", I have seen many creations with this set that make me smile. I grew up in a household with a pet Budgie - Fred, well there was actually 3 Freds, all different but all really fun in their own way, and my daughter has a budgie called Happy - he is one crazy bird that gets up to all sorts of mischief!

So with all that my first thoughts were to create a budgie card, but no matter how long I looked at the stamps, a card image didn't appear with a budgie, but here is what did come into my head: 

 Created by Sue Vine using Bird Banter

Not quite what you would be expecting from a set called Bird Banter! not a bird to be seen! But I do really like this card, it would be great for any recipient, and it also has a fun festive feel to it.

I used the masking technique to layer the balloons and the edge of the Stitched Shapes die cut, then coloured with Stampin Blends.I layered the square on 2 squares cut from Basic Black; it gives a very fine line of detail around the focal image when the card in on an angle, and made the stitching pop a little too.

I'm a bit of a hoarder of cardstock scraps, and that is where I found the strip of Basic Black for the sentiment - no additional trimming required, it was meant to be! I popped it up with mini dimensionals over the stamped focal point, and there you have it, my completed card.
