Bird Silhouette

I love the Bird Silhouette Bigz die but have hardly used it! I had a little play time over the Christmas break and came up with this - not what I first intended... my background started far less grungy but I just can't help myself adding layers until I have gone too far! 
I randomly collaged some scraps of paper onto card and die cut the bird before adding some ink and paint. I also cut the two little birds.

I would like to enter:

See you soon


  1. Fantastic use of the bird image with the wonderful designs on it.

    Love Chrissie xx

  2. Beautiful Nikki! I love the bird with all the amazing patterns on it, what a fabulous focal piece! I hope you had a wonderful New Year! Here's to another year full of love, laughter and crafting! hugs :)

  3. Oh this is so sweet Nikki,love the little birdies
    Hope you have a fab 2016 ;)
