This bird, 'Tweet Friend' is one of my favorite D2D birds. She has flourishes and she knows she's pretty. That's okay for a bird! I printed onto water color paper and used Ranger Distress inks to color. Since she is such an angel, I gave her a halo with gold Stickles. She got Stickled all over!
The 'Poinsettia' I printed onto red card stock and cut out. (Is that cheating?) I added them to the tree to make it more Christmas-y. So this bird is perched in the rare Poinsettia Tree! I used red Stickles on the poinsettia as well as dots of gold and green Stickles for the centers.
The sentiment is part of the 'Tweet Friend' set, although I added the little musical notes by hand.
The background paper is from the DCWV Christmas stack. I don't know why I buy those big stacks. It takes me several YEARS to use it all up.
