City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 215 ~ It's for the Birds!

This week at



Our lovely host Char said...

It's for the BIRDS!

I started with this birds on branches paper, got it from Michael's when they are 10 cents a piece, don't really like it that much since it is quite plain and dull, so I stamped a few bloom, embossed with white embossing powder and then used watercolor on them.


next is to add some sequins....



this is one of the page for year book 2013, photo taken at Glashaus, a sweet little cafe in Grafing, Germany.
